Made in America

Photographer’s journey reveals handmade treasures


Portraits of the American Craftsman

Photographs by Tadd Myers

Hardcover, 275 pages ($29.95, Lyons Press)

Myers, an award-winning corporate photographer, began this project as a commercial assignment about the restoration about an historic building in his home state of Texas, but expanded it as he began to wonder about other work across America still done by hand. This chronicle of his ensuing journey—a collection of images of musical instruments, clothing, long rifles and carving knives, surfboards and boats, stagecoaches and carousel horses, Grammy Awards, suits for country stars, other hand-crafted wonders and the people who make them—will give you a whole new appreciation for the phrase “made in the U.S.A.”
