9780847849086: The Italian Art of Shoemaking: Works of Art in Leather

An exclusive look inside the world of Moreschi, one of the world’s most prestigious shoemakers. Moreschi is renowned for its exacting standards and unique style, and for producing each and every pair on-site, from the arrival of the leather to boxing and dispatching to stores. The art of shoemaking is detailed throughout this richly illustrated book. Through conversations with the founder, the artisans’ memories, and pictures of dozens of the factory’s creations, a story unfolds that confirms the vast heritage of artisan culture that lies behind Italian production. Moreschi shoes have been worn by the likes of Richard Burton, Liam Neeson, Adrien Brody, Michael Jackson, James Brown, Johnny Cash, and also sports stars such as Michael Jordan, Novak Djokovic, and Alberto Tomba.

Review:

Without a doubt, [this book] offers the reader an education in the art of shoemaking. . . The visuals are beautiful and help the reader to quite literally understand the text without any further explanation; the photos expose the reader to the particular attributes and features of a Moreschi shoe. . . The Italian Art of Shoemaking: Works of Art in Leather is entertaining as well as informative. Recommended."
-NY JOURNAL OF BOOKS

"If you're interested in a deep dive into the culture of one of the world's most distinguished shoemakers, consider The Italian Art of Shoemaking: Works of Art in Leather. It takes readers inside the world of Moreschi shoes, which have long been recognized for their craftsmanship and unique style. . while the brand has designs on the future, including a more recently developed women's line, this volume is a remarkable exploration of the history that made them an institution."
