After much consternation and a little yelling, “The Book of Plates” arrived at our warehouse this morning, along with all the custom boxes to ship the book to customers.
I haven’t seen the final bound book with the muted gold stamp on the cover, but John says it looks great.
As promised, our warehouse is setting up a special assembly line to ship out all the pre-publication orders as quickly as possible. If you ordered “The Book of Plates” during our free shipping offer, your book will be in the mail very soon.
If you plan to order the book through one of our retailers, such as Lee Valley Tools, Lie-Nielsen Toolworks, Classic Hand Tools UK, Highland Woodworking or Henry Eckert, keep an eye on their web sites. Their orders were shipped on Friday.
If you haven’t ordered “The Book of Plates” there is still time for Christmas, though it will be a squeaker. The book is $100 plus $9 shipping and handling. The book is heavy (more than 8 lbs.), oversized and shipped in a custom box.
Oh and the above illustration of Cato the Roubo crow was made by Suzanne Ellison, our researcher, indexer and contributing editor. The elements of the collage come from “The Book of Plates” (except the crow).

Got the email that mine shipped this afternoon. THanks.

Yea, got my tracking number too. Looking forward.
There was never any doubt you guys would do your part. Now if only the Post Office can deliver it to my house instead of one of my neighbors.
Yup, from your postings and enthusiasm I can see you’re a bibliophile true and true.
I’d much rather have them plates in electronic format, PDF file preferably.
Hopefully you’ll make them available?
got my notification – now just have to beat my wife to the mail box so that she doesn’t discover that it is not a set of ceramic plates…
I can’t remember when I have been so excited about receiving something in the mail. I hope it is shipped within a plastic wrapper inside the custom box. We have a little snow up here in Buffalo.
