The Invisible Line : When Craft Becomes Art Hardback
What distinguishes art from craft? Since the traditional answer skews utilitarian and hinges on an object's 'use value ' musical instruments are typically grouped into the latter category.
This is a grave oversight. In EThe Invisible Line: When Craft Becomes ArtE seven West Coast artisans discuss their work and make the case for curatorial inclusion of instruments (and other primitives ) alongside the finest sculptures etchings paintings and pastels the world's museums have to offer.
Conceived and edited by Larry Robinson the man behind EThe Art of Inlay: Design and Technique for Fine WoodworkingE EThe Invisible LineE consists of seven lavishly self-illustrated essays penned by self-employed practicing artisans (rather than academics art historians journalists or critics) at the height of their careers.
Whether you're a a practicing musician an art aficionado a luthier or woodworker or an everyday person with an affinity for the aesthetically pleasant this gorgeous volume is sure to awe and inspire.
