STORY

The first English translation of the 18th-century masterpiece L’art du Menuisier by André-Jacob Roubo, this deluxe book is a handsome gift for lovers of furniture and design. Born in Paris in 1739, Roubo came from a family of furniture makers — despite his poor upbringing, he taught himself mathematics and design and developed a keen eye for precision woodworking. Encased in a sturdy blue sleeve for protection, this volume covers all of Roubo’s writings on tools, the workshop, joinery, and the craft of building furniture.

NOTES

The text is printed on #100 Mohawk Superfine paper — one of the finest domestic papers available today — and all images and plates are printed in stunning full color. In addition to the translated text and images from the original, this book also includes five contemporary essays on Roubo’s writing by craftsmen Christopher Schwarz, Don Williams, Michael Mascelli, Philippe Lafargue, and Jonathan Thornton. Filled with difficult (or impossible) to find insights on woodworking, With All the Precision Possible imparts a nuanced view of the craft with a level of detail and clarity that’s rare in any era.
