H.O. Studley Book: Free Shipping, Postcards & Release Date


Apologies. That giant “whooshing” sound you heard from the Tristate area was just me. Our printer has just informed us that “Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of H.O. Studley” is on track for delivery a day or so before Handworks.

Disasters could still happen – Tennessee could burn to the ground, there could be a plague of hermit crabs or Cletus could get his willie stuck in the die-stamp machine. But chances are excellent that we will have the book in Iowa.

We’ll be selling it in the Festhalle Barn at Handworks and delivering it to customers who requested to pick it up at Handworks. A remote Lost Art Press team (look for a Swede or a redhead) will be selling the book at the Studley exhibit in nearby Cedar Rapids.

(Note: If you asked to pick up the book in Iowa you will need to come to the Festhalle Barn to pick it up. The Lost Art Press people at the exhibit will not have the list of people who ordered the book. They cannot give you your pre-ordered book. They can only sell you a book.)

In other good news, the commemorative 4×6 postcards have arrived. They are beautiful. If you have placed a pre-publication order by this point, you will receive a postcard.

Also, free domestic shipping on “Virtuoso” ends next week. If you order the book now, you will save $8 to $10, depending on where you live. And chances are good you will get a postcard, too.

After Handworks, the remainder of the pre-publication orders should ship the week of May 18.

P.S. We hope to have information soon on a special poster that will be sold at the exhibit.

    Here’s where I see a problem. For me that is. Need to think.
    I hope all is well.

    When will the book be at Classic Hand Tools? How can we in the UK get postcards and posters?

      Sorry, should have checked CHTs website first! It says there late May. Postcards and posters question still extant, though.

    I am really sad that I would be able to attend Handworks. For now, it seems the Studley chest will have to remain my favorite object I have never actually seen. I am really thankful that this book is happening and for all the hard work that went into it! Cheers!

  6. What is the southern fascination with the name Cletus? I lived in Cincinnati for a decade and many people from Kentucky referred to others as Cletus (normally when said person was doing something stupid). Is there an origin story? Where is Jeff Burks when you need him?
