De Sousa Hughes is a San Francisco showroom led by cofounders and creative directors Erik Hughes and Geoffrey De Sousa. The gallery represents furniture, textiles, lighting, art, and accessories worldwide, focusing on handcraft. Celebrating the makers who have collaborated and grown with De Sousa Hughes over the past 20 years, the limited-edition book In the Making offers an incredible insight into their creative process, dedication and craftsmanship.

The book features tactile papers, embossing, and original illustrations bound together into an object intended to inspire readers to slow down, breathe, and immerse themselves in the beauty of craft. We commissioned Zürich-based illustrator Paula Troxler to create original and witty illustrations for the ‘Seeds of Wisdom’, a special section in the book featuring quotes from the makers. Tanzender Stern (Dancing Star), 2000, serves as the source for the cover. It is a poignant, signature nail-embossed print by German sculptor and installation artist Günther Uecker.
