PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Discover the intimate, beguiling and surprising stories of 19 objects taken into the restorative care of 'The Repair Shop', the popular BBC programme which first aired in 2017 and has since become a much-loved fixture in the television schedule. Charming, poignant and eccentric tales inspired by objects, just as intriguing as the meaning they have for their owners. From a Jamaican-Pump Organ, and a bicycle from Bletchley Park; to a foundling's teddy bear and a 'Rusty Bucket' with a tale to tell from Occupied France. A selection of expanded stories from the programme, with contributions from the talented craftsmen and women who worked to restore the objects. Illustrated with ‘before’ and ‘after’ photographs and with a Foreword by Jay Blades (b.1970).

Very poor quality paper, the photos on that paper are unacceptable. The photos on the quality paper inserts are better but stll poorly defined.
