craft&design supports the aims of Anti Copying In Design
I believe your magazine is providing a genuine service to makers such as myself by highlighting the places to find good quality pieces of craftsmanship in this country.
The public is more discerning than they are given credit for and many people appreciate a cherished piece of work more than mass produced commodities.
