The modern beehive was patented and standardised in 1852 which meant lots of other techniques and experimental innovations in hive making and design were then neglected or forgotten. This extraordinary visual archive of 371 beehives is a testament to human ingenuity, reviving these lost skills and talents. The book is an optimistic insight into folk art, craft, creativity, community and possibility, portraying some 4000 years of bee-tech and the history of the hive.
