Publisher Description

Real salutes what the world has to offer. This visually stunning, thought-provoking book is about looking around with awareness, noticing life's quiet details and knowing that the honesty of time changes everything - from a human face, a family home, or a fragile sampler book of antique lace. Real is about the agelessness of integrity; appreciating the imperfect; beauty and our involvement in creating it; acceptance; ancient crafts and craftsmanship; and letting everything age with grace. Illustrated with photographs taken by the author in 27 countries, Real affirms that we are more alike than we sometimes admit - we all have a desire for warmth and love - and that there is dignity in simple things. A detachable fold-out poster is featured inside, which could be used to giftwrap the book or displayed on your inspiration wall.
