Update & Book-release Party for ‘The Anarchist’s Design Book’

MarriageMarkWe sold more than 1,000 copies of “The Anarchist’s Design Book” in about 20 hours yesterday. We don’t know who will get the last of the personally autographed copies – it sold about 4 a.m. Plus we have no way of knowing exactly where the cut-off point is, so I’m afraid you’ll just have to wait for your answer in the mail.

The good news is that all remaining copies sold through the Lost Art Press store will come with a hand-signed letterpress bookplate.

The other good news: We’re holding a book-release party for the book at 7 p.m. on March 12 at our new headquarters: 837 Willard St., Covington, KY 41011. The party will be after the Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event closes at Braxton Brewing, a 10 minute walk away.

There will be some beer and maybe pizza. If you are extra thirsty, you might consider bringing some local something to share. We hope to have all our books and some special T-shirts, too. Oh, we’ll also have the original plates for the book on display. If you’ve never seen real copperplate etchings, I think you’ll be impressed.

Because of Covington fire codes, space is limited. We don’t want our first event to be our last.

As a result, we ask you to RSVP using this non-offensive and easy form. Please be certain you are coming before you RSVP. If you sign up but don’t show up, we’ll post your picture next to the cash register with the bad checks we’ve received.

    Congratulations and all the best on your future endeavors. I own several of your other books and DVDs and this will be a nice addition to my collection.


  3. Great news – would love to come to the party but I am in Upstate NY – so this is my RSVP – I regret that I am unable to attend.

  4. Topher says:

    There is an unfortunate typo on the RSVP page (I think you meant “shirts”). What sort of local libation should I bring from Chicago?

      I live just west of Chicago and I’m interested in going. If you have room for one more, I’ll split gas money with you. If you’re interested, email me at my username here at yahoo.com.

    Forgive me, but the RSVP is missing the R in “t-shirts”.

  6. Now you have to call up Google and have them send their Streetview car by LAP HQ – just to make sure nobody gets confused by the “Blaze” sign when they look up your address…

    Is there a chance to publish in this blog a photograph of the WORKTABLE along with the STAKED CHAIR, both two pieces in the same pic, I think they match superbly.

  8. Congratulations Chris, comfortable and friendly read… Im over 200pgs in now… still feels like a conversation with an old friend, thanks old friend

    Congratulations on the great initial sales. The pdf looks good and I know the print version will wow me. Chapter 99 is a powerful exhortation.

  13. Jason Gaines says:

    Looking forward to the event. We were planning on attending the Hand Tool Event anyway and this is a big plus. Chris, congrats on the publication of your new book, “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” is one of my favorites.
    Will you be around/able to sign a book during the event?
