  • Product Description

    Τhe book “Tools of Tradition” is the result of the love of Pavlos Condellis for Farm life and his professional interest in agricultural machinery. Having experienced himself these changes in Farm life from 1950 onwards through the mechanization of agriculture and the use of modern equipment, he became aware of the value of the old agricultural tools and their importance for the history of our country. Through them, we gain valuable knowledge as to how the farmers worked in the old days, under especially difficult conditions, but also learn with how much technical skill, precision and enthousiasm they went about making those tools.

    Pavlos Condellis was able to collect tools from many parts of Greece, in use for different kinds of work and different crops.

    The use of these tools is illustrated through four categories, showing the working of the land, the tools used in the home, those used in domestic activities and old, long forgotten professions. Concise explanations, accompany the many beautiful photographs, while the old photographs of Takis Tloupas, showing agricultural life and the actual use of those tools, make the collection come to life.

    Pavlos Condellis hopes for this edition to “give not only enjoyment to those who are older and recall in their minds a harsh but also beautiful past, but also make those who are younger became aware of the need to learn about, to love and to save the history of our country and its cultural heritage”.
