This book shows the beauty of taking care of things. It's a mixture of theory, inspiration and practical handbook that wants to help us look at our things with new eyes and learn how we can best fix and take care for them. Isabelle McAllister who worked with innovative construction projects and DIY throughout her adult life tells here about the development of the wear and tear society and old views and techniques; she goes through the properties of different materials, gives tips on repairs that are both visible and invisible and shows inspiring transformation projects. Few of us know what different materials need and how to best repair them. Most people understand that our rate of consumption is not reasonable. Perhaps we also see that things that have been owned and managed - by us or by others - have something that the new lacks call it patina provenance or personality. Something that requires time handling and durability.
