A barrel of crafts

"And, in America, there is a nationwide, still-growing enthusiasm for handicrafts - for pottery, weaving, glass-blowing, carpentry, and all the other Stone Age exercises perfected by the burghers of Carcassone and the hunters of Lescaux." - an excerpt from a peculiar 1977 New York Magazine article, by Thomas B. Hess. Did he not know how beautiful the cave paintings at Lescaux are? This aside, some of what is written in the article seems oddly relevant today.
