Luckman, Susan 2015, Craft and the Creative Economy, Palgrave Macmillan, Basingstoke and New York.

Craft and the Creative Economy examines the place of craft in the contemporary cultural economy. It addresses why we are now seeing such a significant growth of interest in craft and making, what consumer demand for handmade objects tells us about consumer preferences, authenticity and ethical consumption, and, the cultural work models that underpin craft micro-enterprise.
