Product Details


Amsterdam: Made by Hand is the second such book by the Australian stylist and photographer Pia Jane Bijkerk, who specializes in photographing still life. Amsterdam’s village-like warren of old shops yielded hundreds of interesting objects that serve as the subjects for her work. The book is divided into ten ‘Wanders’ that take the reader through cobblestoned backstreets of the old canal district, where there are woodworkers, jewelry designers, dressmakers, ceramicists and more…The book should appeal to both traveler and interior decorator.” —Pittsburgh Tribune Review

“Australian stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk proudly shows off the artisan ateliers, workshops and stores of her adopted city of Amsterdam in this latest book. It’s the second in her Made By Hand series; the first covered Bijkerk’s previous home town, Paris. What makes this new volume so appealing are the photos accompanying each of the lovingly written entries.” —Inside Out (Australia)

“Bijkerk covers every nook and cranny of Amsterdam’s maze-like streets. From more well-known destinations…to the tiny retail havens nestled between canals…Bijkerk leads readers through Amsterdam store by store…For astute tourists or locals looking for a fresh take on their hometown, both ‘Amsterdam: Made By Hand’ and its Paris counterpart make well-edited guides to some of each city’s most distinct offerings.” –Cool Hunting


“Page through Bijkerk’s new book for a host of great sources, photographed to draw you into another world where you’ll find jewelers, ceramicists, hat-makers, and more.” —Traditional Home


Amsterdam: Made By Hand is a compact guidebook… captures how Amsterdam looks and feels through her eyes along with some of her most cherished shop suggestions. This book is ideal for those looking for a bit of an ‘off the beaten path’ guide to where one can find shops catering more to the handmade, upcycled, vintage-loving crowd. ” —Decor8 : Fresh Finds for Hip Spaces
