Located on Isola di Spargi in the Maddalena Archipelago, Cala Granara could almost be mistaken for a tropical Tahitian beach.

Made by Hand is a visual exploration of artisan craftspeople from all over the world. Canvassing across neon sign makers, bladesmiths, violin makers and other individuals who employ time-honored practices, this latest hard-copy publication takes readers through the spaces and processes that in many regards had to be lost in order to be rediscovered. Touring through the United Kingdom, the United States and Scandinavia, Made by Hand features imagery and testimony from Glasgow-based bag makers Trakke, Chicago spectacle makers Urban Spectacles, bladesmiths Orchard Steel from Brooklyn, Swedish shoemaker Viktoria Nilsson, Japanese paper makers Awagami, and watchmaker Quentin Carnaille of Lille. Available from Amazon.

One of only 1,047 ever produced by Karmann, this Porsche 356 notchback actually sat for years in the Cincinnati Art Museum. It goes up for auction in October with full restoration and a brilliant blue and black color scheme that looks about as good as any vintage 356 out there.
