"I started to realize there are certain aspects of 'handmade' that are in my DNA. It's how I think and operate and look at the world. I want things made by hand around me. I value them."
- Lisa Solomon, in a 2012 interview with Carol Rowntree Jones

Hand/Made, a monograph of Bay-area artist Lisa Solomon's mixed-media work, showcases Solomon's attention to the detail and texture of the everyday, and to the feminine as it erupts into that dailyness. Invoking histories both personal and wider, Solomon demonstrates the effect that the smallest things can have. Solomon incorporates thread (alone and as crochet) into drawings and installations, materially bridging craft and fine art, and bringing concerns with domesticity and women's stories to the fore.
Fifty copies are available with an original relief print, embroidered, signed, and numbered by Lisa Solomon. The prints are just smaller than A5 (14 x 21 cm or 5.5 x 8.5 in.).
