First published in 1939, Made in England is a book about the people and crafts of the cottage industries of England, written by the acclaimed social historian, photographer and illustrator Dorothy Hartley.

In the mid 1930s she travelled England by car and bicycle gathering material for the book. Published as a companion volume to Food in England, the book is a portrait not only of the rural industries – whether wood-working or stonework, weaving or pottery, but also of the people engaged in these occupations. Written in direct prose belying her innate curiosity, each chapter covers a specific skill, and is illustrated with Hartley’s own photographs and charming, accurate pen-and-ink drawings.

‘Lucid, demure and unemphatic. Her wit is dry and subtle’ The New Yorker
