Detailed Description

Campaign Furniture By Christopher Schwarz

For almost 200 years, simple and sturdy pieces of campaign furniture were used by people all over the globe, and yet this remarkable furniture style is now almost unknown to most woodworkers and furniture designers.

The latest book from Lost Art Press seeks to restore this style to its proper place by introducing woodworkers to the simple lines, robust joinery and ingenious hardware that characterize campaign pieces. Campaign Furniture by Christopher Schwarz uses more than 400 photos and drawings to explain the foundations of the style, and it provides plans for nine piece of classic campaign furniture, from the classic stackable chests of drawers to folding Roorkee chairs and collapsible bookcases.

In addition to all that, Campaign Furniture contains the first English-language translation of A.J. Roubo's 18th-century text on campaign pieces, plus drawings of dozens of pieces of British campaign furniture culled from original copies of the Army & Navy stores catalogs.

The book is 344 pages and printed in a 6" x 9" format. The paper is #80 matte coated paper, which is heavy, bright white and takes exceptional detail. The book is be casebound, Smythe sewn and have contrasting headbands.
