"In Her Hands: Craftswomen Changing the World is a photographed documentary of ninety women in twelve countries on four continents, revealing their diverse lives and surprisingly universal aspirations." "Authors Paola Gianturco and Toby Tuttle have spent five years photographing, interviewing, and writing about craftswomen for this volume. The artisans' individual voices are heard throughout the book as the authors describe their encounters with the craftswomen; amusing, affecting journal entries relate the authors' own experiences and reflections. In Her Hands celebrates a different kind of women's movement - one in which mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and friends join together to create beautiful crafts that contribute to a better life for themselves and for future generations."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
