Cover of CAST: Art and Objects Made Using Humanity's Most Transformative Process


During the month of October, donate to become a member of AJF and you’ll be entered into a raffle to receive one of 10 copies of CAST: Art and Objects Made Using Humanity’s Most Transformative Process.

CAST is perfect for makers and educators, but also for curators and collectors as well. It’s an inside look at the process of casting and how it has literally shaped the history of making for the last 6,000 years.

With hundreds of beautiful images and the stories behind them, CAST is a fascinating look at a process that has given us everything from statuary to toilets and bricks to wedding rings–its influence on our world is hard to overstate.

To be entered into the raffle for a chance to win a copy of CAST, donate to become a member of AJF between October 1–31. Membership in AJF starts at $10 a month or $120 a year. Members of AJF who have already selected the recurring option–either monthly or annually–are automatically entered into the raffle.
