On a unique cross-country journey, Heart & Hands: Musical Instrument Makers of America takes us into homes and studios of crafts people whose love of the fine handwork is matched only by their passion for making music. Cutting across geographic and cultural boundaries, this first-of-its-kind photo essay includes makers of heirloom instruments costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to the simplest folk instruments made from recycled materials. This extensive volume contains photographs and excerpts from interviews of more than 250 makers of musical instruments throughout the country. It beautifully displays their craftsmanship, which stands as one of the nation's musical and artistic treasures.
