LostArtPress on InstagramHey chair nerds. We’ve opened up sales of our Edwin Skulls chair poster. We have only 500 so get them while you can. Price $18 (which includes domestic shipping). These also will be sold through @classic_hand_tools in the UK.Apologies for the non-woodworking content. But there’s no way Lost Art Press would exist if it weren’t for this day 30 years ago. That’s when Lucy May @crazycatandhippolady and I went on our first date. She asked me out to see the movie “Rollerball.” (I would have never asked her out as she was – and still is – better than I deserve.) Within six months of that date, we were living together. And within three years we were married (I’m no fool) and on this big adventure. More than anyone in my life, Lucy has encouraged me to let my wilder instincts free. Despite the risks, she said “yes” when I wanted to start The Kentucky Gazette. (It failed.) Even more significant, she said “yes” again when I wanted to leave a great job to start Lost Art Press. She’s the best thing that ever happened to me, and I love her madly.Next week we will begin taking pre-publication orders for the expanded edition of “The Anarchist’s Design Book.” It’s 200 pages longer than the first edition and features six additional projects.

“The making of fine furniture – the very words have a full, rich ring to them, bringing the craftsman into line with his forebears, the men who created the English tradition of fine workmanship, and throwing a glow of hope … Continue reading
“We are all apt to cling to youth as if it were the whole of life, the remainder an uncomfortable margin that does not really count. The obvious attractiveness of youth, its bounding health and vigour, its enthusiasms and ambitions, … Continue reading
