This is an excellent survey of an astonishing array of traditional crafts practiced in Ireland. There are essays by experts that include descriptions of tools and techniques as well as the history of the craft, and there are photo essays on still more crafts. I especially loved the dozens of ink drawings which managed to be informative and beautiful at the same time.

Though I would still count it as a picture book for adults, most of the pictures are black and white, so it's not really eye-candy...more
