Detailed Description

l'Art du Menuisier: The Book of Plates. André-Jacob Roubo - Lost Art Press

The Book of Plates is 472 pages long and contains every single plate from all of the volumes of André-Jacob Roubo's 18th-century masterpiece. The Book of Plates is an intoxicating look at 18th-century work, everything from furniture to architectural woodwork, carriage-making, marquetry and garden woodwork. Roubo's volumes are still the legal standard when it comes to the craft of woodworking in most of the world. In addition to containing all 383 plates from L'Art du Menuisier, we have included the first English translation of the table of contents for the books, which serve as a guide to the plates. This table of contents is 11 pages long and is a roadmap to the contents of every plate.

All the plates are printed in full size and on #100 Mohawk Superfine paper - the best paper we could find. The Book of Plates itself is 10" x 14-1/4" x 2" thick - a sizable chunk. As with all Lost Art Press books, The Book of Plates is produced entirely in the United States. It is hardbound, casebound, with sewn signatures and a cloth cover. The plates were scanned from 18th-century originals at the highest resolution possible and are printed at a linescreen that will produce the maximum detail possible for the paper and available technology.
