Here’s a quick update for those of you who have ordered leather-bound editions of “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest.” We dropped off the unbound book blocks at Ohio Book on Tuesday afternoon and they should be ready in three weeks.
These books will be bound in brown leather that is then hand-distressed. The end sheets are hand-colored. The spines of the books are hand-rounded on the ancient machinery in the basement of Ohio Book. And then the final result is stamped with a gold foil on the front cover and spine.
The result is, quite frankly, gorgeous. These books – regardless of the content between the covers – are a joy to hold, read and own.
Of the 26 books in this batch, we have six left. The cost is $185 postage paid anywhere in the United States. To order one of the last six, click here.
