LostArtPress on InstagramThe new, expanded edition of “The Anarchist’s Design Book” landed on my doorstep today. I am relieved and happy to see the new manufacturing details. The red bookmark ribbon is sweet. And the black-on-black printing on the cover worked out well. This is a huge book – 656 pages (200 more than the first edition) and includes 18 projects (six more than the original). If you ordered a copy it should be on its way this week. Our warehouse has begun shipping them. Soon it will arrive with our retailers around the world. Thanks to everyone who helped with corrections and criticism and was patient as I completed the revision. #timefordaydrinking?“I aspire to create tools that function at the highest technical level, are a joy to use and beautiful as objects, like a Herreshoff yacht.” - Thomas Lie-Nielsen — from “The Difference Makers” by Marc Adams @marcadamsschoolofwoodworking #the_difference_makersThis 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.

No doubt many of you are familiar with the famous one-piece bookstand from plate 331 of Roubo’s “With All Precision Possible” popularized by Roy Underhill. This past week, we decided to build a nice bookstand for the shop copy of … Continue reading
