I am not even going to try to define or fully explore what it means to be a craftsman, or craftswoman for that matter, in America and especially not in one singular post. However I found this book, The Craftsman in America published by the National Geographic Society, which does a pretty good job a capturing a sense of what it means to be an “craftsman.”

Along with the images of the people themselves who craft these handmade objects the book also depicts the great variety of crafts made by Americans at the time, and with hope today.

Enjoy the rest of the set here.
