One Year of ‘Hands of Time’

It’s been an incredible journey since the UK release of “Hands of Time” by Rebecca Struthers, beautifully illustrated by Craig Struthers. As we mark its first anniversary, we reflect on a year filled with acclaim and recognition, including the honor of being named a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week.

In this captivating exploration, Struthers invites readers into the fascinating world of watchmaking, unraveling the intricate relationship between humanity and time across centuries and continents. She delves into the profound impact of timepieces on our daily lives, from regulating our routines to shaping the very fabric of society’s evolution.

“Hands of Time” transcends mere storytelling; it’s a journey through history, science, philosophy, and craftsmanship. From her workshop bench, Struthers intricately examines how timekeeping has influenced our work ethic, leisure pursuits, economic endeavors, political landscapes, explorations, and even our perceptions of mortality.

Since its initial UK hard edition release, “Hands of Time” has found its way into the hearts of readers worldwide, with editions now available in the US, Canada, Italy, Spain, and in the next few weeks the Netherlands. And with the upcoming release of the UK paperback edition, the reach of this captivating narrative continues to expand.

We’ve been delighted by the diverse array of covers that have graced the shelves, each offering a unique visual representation of this timeless tale. And there’s even more to look forward to, with additional editions slated for release later this year.

As we celebrate one year of ‘Hands of Time,’ we extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has embraced this journey with us. Here’s to many more years of exploration, discovery, and the timeless allure of watchmaking history.
