People who visit the Hudson waterfront, which is known for its views and milieu, may not be aware of its rich history and aesthetic presence. Therefore, this book is both relevant and insightful. The compact, unique read features a collection of Hand’s scenic photographs to capture the scenery and artisans’ workshops. These photos accompany interviews with a seed librarian, a bicycle recycler, a printer and publisher, a brewer, a stone sculptor, a sheep farmer, a distiller, a glass designer, maple syrup producers and a boat restorer, among others, to offer a captivating portrayal of the creative life and environment.
