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 B. – 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).

I have never had an interest in being a lobster, in Maine or elsewhere, but I could enjoy being at the Maine event if I were not leaving for two weeks at The Open in Carnoustie. Scotland, something I never avoid, for the golf or for Scotland!
While Chris is the face of LAP and it is greatly appreciated for all he has done. I would like to thank the folks behind LAP, John and Megan have help me a number of times and always handled the issues with the upmost respect for me the customer. In this modern day when everything is automated it nice to still be able to get help from real people. To all the folks who make LAP possible Thank You!!
Yup. We all work hard to try to make this a human-scale business. I’m the dancing monkey – John and Meghan do the heavy lifting of getting books in hands.
Re: Alexander and wooden chairs. The person’s relevance to us is primarily as a woodworker. Gender identification has nothing to do with it and obsessing about it and/or trying to be politically correct makes things worse. I would suggest that during the period Alexander identified as a man and used a male name he be assigned a male pronouns and during the period she identified as female and used a female name she be referred to with a female pronoun. The person is dead. Clearly anything written now must be written from an historical perspective. We all get to pronounce out surnames as we please, why not do the same is retrospect for this fine craftsperson?
