Borders Bookstore has Romeyn Beck Hough's The Wood Book The Complete
on sale for $39.95 US. This 800 page, hard bound book has color plates
a transverse section, radial section and tangential section of just
American wood known around the turn of the last century, along with line
drawings of the leaves, flowers and seeds, accompanied by text in
german and french. the book comes in a hard sleeve for added protection.
If you're a wood phreak this is a really nice book to have - especially
this price. The fact that it's put together with stitched binding makes
the price even more surprising.
I have no affiliation with Borders or Taschen, the publisher of the
and am merely posting this heads up for you wood phreaks.
