Pick Up Your Copy of ‘To Make as Perfectly as Possible’ at WIA

LAP-Roubo-PressmarkAfter several requests from customers who have ordered the deluxe or standard edition of “To Make as Perfectly as Possibly: Roubo on Marquetry,” we have worked out a way for you to pick up your order at Woodworking in America, Oct. 18-20.

Picking it up will allow you to get it signed by many of the people involved in the project, including author Don Williams and (we hope) Michele Pietryka-Pagán, Philippe Lafargue and designer Wesley Tanner.

We hope to have a book-release party on Thursday, Oct. 17, and a book signing on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 19. Details to follow in the coming weeks.

Unfortunately, if you are not able to attend Woodworking in America we cannot get your books autographed for you. The logistics are too complicated and we are already having to truck a huge number of books from Indiana (and unclaimed ones back) for this event. Our apologies.

I know there will be some gritching about this, but I will remind you that we are just two people and our focus is on making books, not creating autographed collectibles.

If you are attending Woodworking in America, you will be able to pick up your copy of the book at the book-release party on Thursday or in our booth in the Marketplace on Oct. 18-19. The Marketplace is not open on Sunday. To claim your book, we’ll need your name and e-mail address so we can mark you off the list.

If you’d like to order the standard edition of “To Make as Perfectly as Possible,” visit our store here. We still have some of the deluxe editions, which can be purchased here.

  1. Don’t want to be a jerk, but I’ll be the one to ask. Can we see autograph samples from the team?

    • lostartpress says:

      I don’t even know what an autograph sample is. For verifying authenticity?

      I don’t even have autographs of anyone on the team except me.

      • Essentially, yes. Also it would be pleasant to know what the signatures would look like on a page of such a fine book. I’ll be trying to make it to WIA. Sorry, the books worth every penny, it’s just the cost of it and then the cost of travel kinda makes me like “this”. Whatever you call “this”.

  2. Re-reads “I know there will be some gritching about this, but I will remind you that we are just two people and our focus is on making books, not creating autographed collectibles.”

    Feels like dirt : (

  3. Ed Clarke says:

    What size should a Roubo style book stand be for the deluxe version book? That’s 12 x 17 which gives me a 24 inch wide book when open. Do I need a two foot wide slab of primary wood?

  4. I was just saying that I felt like a jerk for quibbling over a detail they had specified was not the focus of their agenda. They made a point, I glossed over it.

  5. jwatriss says:

    Kind of a shame the pre-ordered big version doesn’t come already signed, just as a thanks for good faith.

    But, I do get it.

    C’est la Guerre.
