Art vs Craft

"...Yes there is a difference between art and craft, but some craftsmen are artists, and some artists are certainly
in the realm of craft..."- Mardy Sears (From a discussion on if bookbinders should get credit from artists for initially making the book)

I've said a similar statement myself before and I think it's a really important thing to remember in relation to postmodernism. That being said, I don't believe that you have to keep the two separate, but you do have to initially understand their differences with out any value judgments.
