This from an email received yesterday:
I would like to know if one can purchase a copy of the drawing you use for the top of your web site.
(it shows a woodworker at his bench with mallet raised)
Any help on this would be appreciated.
This request pops up regularly. The logo, which some people call The Little Woodworker, is from a nineteenth century French book on cabinetmaking. The book is actually uneventful, with the exception of the cover image of the woodworker and a duplicate engraving inside. Both are fairly small but in good shape.
Guess it's time to see if I can work up a large version, something that would do well on a poster of sorts. I've been playing around with Imagekind as well as CafePress (which does not have a storefront). Imagekind posters are printed on photo quality paper with high resolution imaging. Cafepress is more poster quality, although you have to compare the two to see the difference.
I'll see which works out the best. Imagekind is a bit more expensive than CafePress which may be the deciding factor.
till next, Gary
