Joint Stool Book Arrives (Right Before the Tornado)

With the weather looking awful today  – heavy thunderstorms with a chance of locusts – I knew the joint stool books would arrive from the printer. That’s why Lost Art Press has invested heavily – perhaps more heavily than any other publishing company in the world – in plastic tarps.

Sure enough, as large drops of rain began to fall, the truck pulled up to the driveway.

Luckily, the driver was strong, affable and good with a pallet jack. And thanks to our extensive investment in infrastructure (e.g. more tarps), all the books are now under roof.

We will start packing them up tonight and the first batch will go into the mail tomorrow.

Make a Joint Stool from a Tree” looks good. The printer did a nice job. And the dust jacket – designed by woodworker, designer and printer Wesley Tanner – is the icing on the cake. Thanks Wesley.

In addition to the new size – 9” x 12” – the full-color printing and the dust jacket, there are a couple other changes you might notice. Each book is shrink wrapped to protect it. And we are using a new custom corrugated package to mail the books. They’re ribbed for protection.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. I can’t wait for you to read it.

    Ribbed. Heh heh. You crack me up.

    • James says:

      I’m sure there’s a joke in there about wood, and shrink wrap and ribbed.

      The problem with telling that joke is that stool is also involved.

    Now I just have to start cutting down the Oak trees in my yard that cause me untold gutter grief every spring and fall!

    Can’t wait, just don’ t send any twisters. I’m trying to quit.

    • Kenny Stanberry says:

      If you have any extra Peter send it my way, you won’t even have to shrink wrap it. All we have is Piñon &. Cedar trees.

  5. Joe says:

    Send me one with NO red ink smear…

  6. Marlon says:

    I was watching the weather the whole time up there. Soo…how much for the discounted tornado ravaged wet books? Sign mine in a smeared red ink please. (Seriously hope ya’ll got them books protected in time.)
    Keep on truckin’!
