Lost Art Press Books

Lost Art Press is one of woodworking's most important book publishers. As their name implies, the founders of Lost Art Press Lucy May, Christopher Schwarz and John Hoffman are inspired by shedding new light on long-lost traditional woodworking practices, dating back to the time when European craftsmen and furniture makers relied almost exclusively on hand tools. Lost Art's emphasis on getting books to press which focus on hand tools and traditional woodworking is helping to fuel classic woodworking's current revival. Browse the Lost Art Press titles below and the mission is clear, their collection of books is bringing back hand tool techniques and furniture making skills previously dwindling into a power tool modernity. The folks at Lost Art Press are as much historians as woodworkers, we see this in "The Joiner and Cabinetmaker", an obscure 1839 woodworking gem brought back to life and modernized for today's woodworkers or by the likes of the complete compilation of the plates that illustrate Roubo's massive 18th century undertaking in "L'Art du Menuisier".

Lost Art's woodworking books are essential reference tools for every craftsman's woodworking library. In addition to serious woodworking books, Lost Art Press has published several delightful reads just for fun. All Lost Art Press books are produced entirely in the United States. You will find the beauty and quality of Lost Art's books refreshing, with many of the hardbound books casebound, with sewn signatures and a cloth covers. Their books are exceptional offerings and make great gifts for the woodworker who has everything. To provide more insight into the woodworking value of Lost Art Press' books we have written reviews for most of our collection and posted the reviews below. We are excited to see what our friends at Lost Art Press have in store of us next!
