We're clearing off a shelf in the warehouse for new titles, and as a result, have three good books (the print versions only) available right now at a deep discount.The first is 'Building Classic Arts & Crafts Furniture: Shop Drawings for 33 Traditional Charles Limbert Projects,' by Michael Crow.
Right now (and only at shopwoodworking.com), it's $7 (75 percent off the cover price).I think we mis-titled this one; it should have been '33 Charles Limbert Furniture Designs,' 'The Genius of Charles Limbert: 33 Arts & Crafts Designs' or something along those lines…because it's a shame the work of Limbert isn't more celebrated in the Arts & Crafts furniture-making books and annals.
Not much is known about the designer beyond his work, which is preserved in period catalogs, but I prefer much of it to the heavier, blockier work of the much better-known Gustav Stickley.Limbert's work has a lightness and elegance that I sometimes find missing in what we most often think of as America Arts & Crafts.
Next is our reprint of Michael Dunbar's classic 'Make a Windsor Chair' - one of the first how-to books on the subject.It, too, is 75 percent off the cover price - just $6.95....
