A Beautiful Tool Book-

We just got a great new publisher's overstock title in on tools- "Tools. Rare and Ingenious. Celebrating the World’s Most Amazing Tools" by Sandor Nagyszalanczy was published in Newtown by The Taunton Press in 2004.

Over the centuries craftsmen have transformed inherently humble objects- drills, saws, planes and levels, into works of art. This beautiful book offers a breathtaking tour of antique tools that rarely leave the jealous hands of their owners. In more than 375 color photographs we see tools ranging from calipers in the shape of ballerinas to a drill shaped like a violin. The old, hand-polished woods gleam, the antique brass shines, and the dedication and imagination of hundreds of anonymous craftsmen from other times is evident on every page.

This book is a hardcover. 9.5”x10”, 210 pages, packed with color illustrations, dj. New. Published for $37.00.

Available for a very limited time for $20.00
