After 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.
