“He who works with his hands is a labourer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”
This is a quote from Saint Francis of Assisi on the nature of art and craft and has inspired a new picture book titled 'Mr Make'.
Mr Make uses his head and his hands to make fantastic things, but we quickly find he is living an empty and heartless life. In fact he has no heart at all! It is only when he chooses to live fully, using his head, his hand and choosing to make himself a heart that he becomes human, as well as realizing his potential for love.
