I'm reading issue 3 of Another Escape magazine and while it's very beautiful the writing often seems poor.

The magazine generally fetishises artisans and craft leading to the idea that they are inherently worthy and important rather than explaining what is important in what they are doing.

Korean paper maker, Californian scent makers, bamboo bicycle makers: it's not clear to me that any of their artisanal activity matters beyond the aesthetic.
