The Alps - Makers Bible
A manifesto for quality, passion and craftsmanship.
101 brands from valleys and rocks.
Many romantic stereotypes pop up when thinking of the Alps. This book however values the crafter and the maker, exceptional brands derived from an exceptional mentality. The third edition of the MAKERS BIBLE is about passionate makers and their brands from the Alpine region.
In this environment of extreme conditions and harsh seasons, protection from the weather becomes mandatory. Therefore, we also look at modern shelters and hospitality, celebrating local resources.
Beautifully researched and presented book, ultimate coffee table adornment for anyone with an interest in the Alps, fine food, wine, hotels and local specialty products. A bible for those with eye on luxury and quality . Love it.
This is a beautifully presented book with wonderful photography. However, it does end up reading like a bit of an Alpine “Yellow Pages”, with a few artisanal producers but a little too many big brands and high ends producers. If you love flicking through Monocle, this is the book for you.
