The theme of Håndværk bookazine no. 7 is ‘construction’.
Issue no. 7 features interviews with architects, designers and active craftspeople from fields such as blacksmithing, bricklaying, carpentry and thatching. They all have a keen focus on the high carbon footprint of the construction industry and of the need to find solutions. The reduction of CO2 emissions is also a key issue when the bookazine takes the reader behind the scenes of the development of wall tiles with a high content of crushed, used bricks. As usual, this issue of the bookazine also includes stories about textiles, glassware, food and drink. And as a special feature, it contains Rigetta Klint’s journal notes from the creation of the issue.
The Håndværk bookazine is based in Denmark and is published by designer, photographer and writer Rigetta Klint. In the publication, Klint draws on her lengthy experience and career – initially as a practicing craftsperson and designer, and later as a writer and photographer. Her approach is driven by high standards and dedication.
With a clear and consistent emphasis on craftsmanship and materiality, the Håndværk bookazine portrays the living and changing practice of design and craft through in-depth interviews and portraits painted in both words and images. It focuses on craft in its own right and as a necessary basis for architecture, art, fashion, interior design, as well as for a good meal.
