You may recall us featuring the ‘With Love Project’ on the blog last Spring, but for those who missed it, or are in need of a recap then please do read on.
The With Love Project is the creation of Chris Roberts & Rob Evans and is centered around their search to find people who produce things with a passion and a purpose, who truly care about what they do and what they make. Throughout 2015 Chris & Rob travelled from the length and breadth of the country – from the Outer Hebrides to the tip of Cornwall asking everyone they met the same question … why do you do what you do? Almost a year on the chaps have met nearly 40 inspiring individuals from traditional furniture makers at the top of their game, motorcycle manufacturers hand-building by eye, wheelwrights who can trace their family trade back to the 1300s and tailors who’ve produced suits for Pavarotti.
With their trip now complete they’re now ready to document these individual stories in a limited edition hardback containing exclusive and previously unseen interviews and photography. However, in order to get the book to print they require our support via their Kickstarter campaign. Now I’m not usually one for plugging things more than once on the blog, but in this instance I’ve made an exception, as I’d love nothing more than to see this inspirational book go to publication.
To learn a little more about the project and guarantee your copy of the book, head over to the With Love Project Kickstarter page where you’ll also find some fantastic handmade rewards courtesy of the makers included in the project.
