Some readers have requested a searchable “Table of the Plates” to accompany the printed version of A.-J. Roubo’s “The Book of Plates.” So we have created this word-searchable pdf that you can download by merely clicking the link below.
The document is a 13-page pdf. You can search it in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader by going to Edit/Find. Or by pressing the command+F keys. This will bring up a search box where you can type your queries.
We hope this makes “The Book of Plates” easier to use.
In other news on this product, we have sold about half of the press run and will not reprint this title. The expense of creating this book was simply too much for us to attempt again. This isn’t a hard sales pitch – at this rate we’ll have the book in stock for a few years. It’s just a heads up. If you want the book, get your act together in the next couple years.

Just ordered mine last week, and it’s arriving on Wednesday. PERFECT timing on the index, thanks! ;>)
Very cool, thanks for the index. I had a feeling this printing might not last long. I’m glad I got my copy when I had the money to do it.
We want to keep all of our books in print for as long as we are in business. But this one is just too much for a small company to manage. A small print run costs as much as a Midwestern house – and not a starter house.
Make the digital version available. It’ll cost next to nothing.
As I mentioned before, we have decided not to.
We welcome anyone to invest the $30,000 required to purchase originals, digitize the plates and reap the benefits themselves.
Thanks John and Chris, I was one of the readers who requested the file. I’m sure I will use it.

Chris. Just placed my order! I am most excited however, to see the custom wooden box accompanying the book!…
That was what you said wasn’t it?
Maybe we can expect a 10 year anniversary edition of the book like this one:
