WCraig Posted June 30, 2008 Report Share Posted June 30, 2008 Thanks for the kind words, everybody. I hope the book is useful and enjoyable. Doug, I thought about selling it, but decided the little money it was likely to bring in versus the pain and agony of burning CDs and mailing, international customs agencies, shipping and currency exchanges just wasn't likely to compute. I've approached publishers in the past, to startlingly little interest. A few years back I applied for a grant from my state arts commission to put it into print and was told it was just too "esoteric" an issue. Surprising to me, considering the weird stuff they did provide grants for that year. Hence, I just decided a free download would be the best way to get the information into the real world, for real people. Netsuke have provided me with a lot of enjoyment over the years, a lot of really great carvers, collectors and dealers have provided help and advice to me, free of charge or obligation, so I figured I should try to pay something back to the world. Maybe if there was a little more of the sort of helpful attitude we carvers experience in our little groups, the world wouldn't be the sewer it is. Sorry for the rant... Great teachers are to honored, thank you for sharing your knowledge Maestro Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
