Encore! is the long-awaited sequel to The New Artisans, Olivier Dupon's 2011 trendsetting publication that introduced a new generation of makers crafting desirable objects for modern lifestyles. Since its publication craft and making have become an established part of contemporary culture and our desire for the handmade shows no sign of abating.

Encore! showcases sixty brand new makers, from nineteen countries, whose creations, including textile birds, paper masks, hand thrown ceramics and tailormade bicycles, will inspire and delight. It is a perfectly curated sourcebook for discovering unique and beautiful pieces, handmade with love. From the timeless furniture of professional-basketball-playersturned- craftsmen, the Brothers Dressler, to Hannah Waldron's graphicinspired woven textiles to Manuela Castro Martin's textural 'glass lace', Encore! features hundreds of one-of-a-kind, handmade wonders from all over the world.

Encore! is divided into two sections for ease of reference. The first profiles the artisans in easy to follow alphabetical order, whilst the second consists of a directory of products, neatly divided into categories as well as the author's personal recommendations for inspiring shops, websites and blogs to visit. Interviews with the makers reveal enchanting stories and a generosity of spirit is common to all the makers.

The New Artisans has spawned a host of imitator titles but none that offer the breadth, diversity and international reach of Dupon's curation. Featuring over 700 colour images showing the artisans at work, as well as products in inspirational studio and domestic settings, Encore! is a reference guide, a source of inspiration and a covetable object in its own right.
