The new book Made in New York, Handcrafted Works by Master Artisans has many connections to the East End. It was written by Sagaponack’s Nathalie Sann with photographs by her husband Ted Sann. Among the featured artisans are Sag Harbor’s premier decoy carver Robert Hand, Shelter Island’s C.H. Marine Yachts and East Hampton tableware maker Sydney Albertini.
But the majority of featured subjects are New York-based and their work relates to home design, decorating. This might appeal to you as a reader. The beautiful photographs alone are “worth the price of admission,” in my opinion.
This little book would make a great housewarming gift. It’s also a good bet for a home crafter. It reveals in stunning color what human hands can create.
Made in New York, Handcrafted Works by Master Artisans by Nathalie and Ted Sann (Rizzoli: 2012) $29.95, is available locally at Books & Books in Westhampton Beach and online. Printed in China.
