The new issues from The Heritage Post magazine men and women are out soon. On the cover of the men’s edition is the famous furniture maker Piet Hein Eek this time. Piet Hein is from the same village as my hometown, Eindhoven – NL, and he’s a true craftsman. You should definitely check out his work, he’s using a lot of scrap wood to make new cool products like tables and bookcases. That’s his most famous signature. Both covers from the mags are awesome. Nice job Uwe van Afferden!
