The Alps cast a spell on many. Snowcapped peaks, lake surfaces mirroring the horizon, mighty forests and the cozy comfort of a mountain hut. These awe-inspiring rocks form deep valleys and breed a special kind of people with a special mentality.
The third edition of the MAKERS BIBLE is about passionate makers and their brands. In an environment of extreme conditions and harsh seasons protection from the weather becomes mandatory. Therefore, we also look at modern shelters and hospitality, celebrating local resources.
NEW IN THIS EDITION: ARCHITECTURE, SHELTERS AND DESTINATIONS
The curators of the Makers Bible took a look at the makers and crafted products of the Alps. For this alpine edition we asked: What is necessary in an environment of such harsh nature as the Alps? What is the expecta- tion of our reader when he hears the word “Alps”?
We had to look at shelters. But how could they be crafted? Our solution lies in showing architects and examples of their studios specialized in alpine architecture. Here, we were interested in modern architecture.
Another question when looking at food: “what is modern alpine cuisine?” Hence the reader finds selected hotels and authentic restaurants that mirror a love to local products and skilled craftsmanship in their kitchens. Since all our books provide URLs and more info this book also works as a guide book.
