A Way of Working
D. M. Dooling
Parabola Books, Nov 1, 1985 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 127 pages
In this enriching collection of eleven interrelated essays, "A Way of Working" explores the ancient relationship of art, order, and craft. Craft is considered as a "sort of ark" for the transmission of real knowledge about being, and about our deep creative aspirations. The book includes contributions from D. M. Dooling, Joseph Cary, Paul Jordan-Smith, Michael Donner, Harry Remde, Jean Kinkead Martine, Jean Sulzberger, Chanit Roston, and P. L. Travers. This group of authors write not as individuals but as members of a community -- a guild effort. As one chapter heading put it: the alchemy of craft.
