»The Book of Plates« contains every single gorgeous illustration from all of the volumes of André-Jacob Roubo's »L'Art du Menuisier«, the most important woodworking book of the 18th century. All the plates are printed full size on #100 Mohawk Superfine paper - the best paper available today. The plates were scanned from 18th-century originals at the highest resolution available and are printed at a linescreen that will produce the maximum detail possible. We think »The Book of Plates« is an intoxicating look at 18th-century work, everything from furniture to architectural woodwork, carriage-making, marquetry and garden woodwork. Even if you have never read one of the books or translations of Roubo's texts, »The Book of Plates« will inspire you to develop new ideas. Among the connoisseurs of the yet published books, this volume with its 382 illustrations is considered an indispensable work of reference. Based on a 10-page translation, the authors guide you through the plates, describing in which way a modern woodworker can learn from them. Follow the authors on a journey through time and discover a world seeming both familiar and strange.
