Anima: Carved Bark Figures

I have a self-published book, Anima, which shows a series of Bark Carvings at pretty much full-scale, with photographs by Adam Kurtz.
Dan's four Rustic Books
All these books have a mix of history, lore, technical information and projects. And they each feature work by a couple of dozen different makers in addition to Dan's work. No one book is "better", but the first...
Making Rustic Furniture (1991)
...is the longest. It costs $20 signed. There are over 100,000 copies out there!
The Art of Rustic Furniture (1995) out-of-print
Renamed Titles.... the same information. The second book, The Rustic Furniture Companion, was re-named The Art of Rustic Furniture (1995) when it went to paperback. As of 2006, this is now out-of-print and available only from Amazon or Ebay.
The Rustic Workshop (1999)
The third book, Simple Rustic Furniture, was re-named The Rustic Workshop (1999) when it went to paperback. For $25, I'll sign a single copy for you and draw a picture in it and send it along priority mail.
Rustic Garden Furniture and Accessories
In 2004, I finished a new rustic book with my friend, Thomas Stender. Rustic Garden Furniture and Accessories is the fourth in this Rustic Series for Lark Books with 30 clear projects and up-to-date tool information. I have paperback editions for $18, signed.
If you want the three available Lark-Rustic Books together, signed and drawn in, you have a deal for only $60, delivered in the US.
Dan Mack writes about Log Cabins
In 1999, Log Cabin Living came out.
It's a long essay-poem on the log cabin... on everything except how to make them! It's about camping, bugs, ghosts, trees, food collecting and all the other little streams of imagination that feed the Log Cabin mind in each of us. This is now out-of-print and available only from Amazon or Ebay. But I have two copies left to sell. $40 post-paid.
