Antiquity Press began out of the fear of losing the best of the past, the ingenuity, the creativity, the craftsmanship and the values. As our lives 'scale up' and we live within metrics and instant gratification, we lose site of the importance of just one person feeling good about what she or he made that day and know nothing beats sitting back and quietly admiring your craftsmanship or the genius idea you had. Making something teaches you the nature and behavior of your materials and in the process, the nature of the physical world. Making something forces you to focus on just the right assembly sequence that makes it work. Making something leads you to acquire 'an eye' for design and finish. The joy of seeing it and using it never leaves and forever enriches.
We seek out wonderful antiquarian books that can be updated to fit today's lifestyles and interests, letting us introduce folks to new interests and sources of skill and satisfaction. We hope that our books will inspire you to make something and enrich your life beyond wealth. We offer a compliment of additional books on cocktails through our affiliation with Bookshop.
