Why We Make Things and Why It Matters
Throughout this journey, Korn falls in and out of love, gets cancer and recovers, opens and closes up shop throughout the northeast, spends some time in Colorado, and then comes back again. Over the course of his life, Korn also develops powerful thoughts about what it means to make things, and why making things matters. As Korn writes, a craftsman not only develops the ability to make high quality products, but also develops the distinct ability to look closely, and notice complexity:. When I look at a piece of furniture from across a room, I see form, style, scale, context, and intended use. As I approach it, I distinguish material, joinery, and proportions.

Why We Make Things and Why it Matters
Vintage Books If you are a collector or interested in interior design and homemaking; this book provides insight to why we are drawn to the objects we love. The book is insightful on the creative processes, and the impulse which makes us create; but at its heart, the book is an autobiography. The timeline takes us from his experience attending a Quaker school, the Vietnam war, to the present day. A youthful Korn, in conversations with his pragmatic Father, eventually looks to woodwork as a practical, and skills-based path to full employment.
Heartfelt and thought-provoking, an eloquent meditation on the nature of work and craftsmanship and why it matters, more than ever, that we value the process of making things well. Why do we make things? Why do we choose the emotionally and physically demanding work of bringing new objects into the world with creativity and skill? Why does it matter that we make things well? What is the nature of work?
A must-read for the craftsperson, artisan and artist. How does the making of objects shape our identities? How does creative work enrich our communities and society? What does the process of making things reveal to us about ourselves? Korn poignantly provides answers in this book that is for the artist, artisan, crafter, do-it-yourselfer inside us all.

Атомный вес! - возбужденно воскликнул Джабба. - Единственное различие - их атомный вес. Это и есть ключ. Давайте оба веса.
Стратмора надо остановить! - кричал Хейл.

Через некоторое время им с огромным трудом удалось расширить щель до одного фута. - Не отпускай, - сказал Стратмор, стараясь изо всех сил. - Еще чуточку. Сьюзан удалось протиснуть в щель плечо. Теперь ей стало удобнее толкать. Створки давили на плечо с неимоверной силой. Не успел Стратмор ее остановить, как она скользнула в образовавшийся проем.
Но, сэр… - заикаясь выдавила .
Ответ был очень простым: есть люди, которым не принято отвечать. - Мистер Беккер, - возвестил громкоговоритель. - Мы прибываем через полчаса.
