LostArtPress on InstagramThis week we have @welshchairmaker teaching at the storefront and have finished up the proofing for his new book on John Brown. Though our Covington neighborhood is German, this week I’m calling it Wee Wales.“Good Work: The Chairmaking Life of John Brown” by Christopher Williams (@welshchairmaker) is now available for pre-publication ordering at our web site.

Editor’s note: When we published David Savage’s “The Intelligent Hand” we were under a cancer-imposed deadline to finish the book, and so some aspects of the production got shorter shrift than I like. One part was this section on the … Continue reading
