This book is now available for Pre-Sale through Lost Art Press
After a three-year journey, my Carving the Acanthus Leaf book is now at the printers and is due to be in print towards the end of November. Time to celebrate! If you pre-order, you will receive a downloadable pdf file that you can view immediately.
Christopher Schwarz and his gang of editors and designers of Lost Art Press have been amazing and patient through this process, as I obsessed over the fine details. I never knew so much happened behind-the-scenes in this book writing process.
To find out more about the book, you can read recent blog posts from Lost Art Press and my blog. Read an in-depth and encouraging book review by Bob Easton here. The direct book sales page also has a description and review of the book.
