In the works and waiting on the printed proof, the new edition of Thomas Martin's opus: The Circle Of The Mechanical Arts, 1813 which will be available soon at a price of around $26 in trade paperback.
The proofs of the books already published through Createspace/Amazon have proven to be of excellent quality!
A friend bought a Japanese loom and spinning wheel, both from c1950 along with samples and a series of notebooks. While I await photos of the loom, here are some scans from one of the notebooks. I'm quite rusty at deciphering dyeing, spinning and weaving so if anyone has any comments, please comment!
While the Great Unpacking continues, select books resurface. In this case, an early Japanese carpentry book in less than nice condition. The rest of my small collection of such books are in much better condition. This one just happened to be the first to greet me. Very careful scanning is in order for these as they are printed on very thin rice paper.
