John, the quieter half of Lost Art Press, will represent us at the Lie-Nielsen Open House this weekend in Warren, Maine. Look for the Lost Art Press flag – it’s dark blue with a white compass on it. You’ll find John nearby.
Please do stop by and say hello. Though John is the less visible half of this company, it wouldn’t exist without him. He’s the guy who makes sure you receive your books and – with the help of Meghan Bates – fixes problems when shipping goes awry. He’s also the guy who makes sure everyone gets paid, from vendors to authors.
Without John’s backbone, I’d probably still be working at a magazine somewhere.
Also, several Lost Art Press authors will be demonstrating at the Lie-Nielsen event:
- Peter Follansbee of “Make a Joint Stool from a Tree”
- Joshua Klein of “Hands Employed Aright”
- Matt Bickford of “Mouldings in Practice”
The event is definitely one of the highlights of the year (unless you are a lobster).
