How did so much beauty and imagination appear in daily rural life articles in Portugal? How did these objects’ shapes so deftly combine need and formal perfection? This book examines the impact that centuries of trial and error, individual artisanship, and an instinct to cut out the important with the tiniest of means had on artefacts that made life in a pre-industrial society both liveable and meaningful. Designer Jasper Morrison photographed and described items that can be admired for their elegance as well as the example they set of design at its purest level.
