An architecture and design journalist, Kristal is a contributing editor of Dwell, a former editor of AIA/J, and has written for Metropolis, the New York Times, Architectural Digest, Elle Decor and numerous other publications. Aside from being a prolific writer, he also happens to be a genuinely nice guy whose enthusiasm for what he covers is positively infectious. He was quite proud of his new publication and rightfully so – it's a really fantastic book. We're equally excited about our copy and have a feeling you will be as well. Available where fine books are sold, Re:Crafted is an excellent resource and certainly worth adding to your own design library. We highly recommend you check it out.
