"Like the furniture Michael Pekovich builds, his book is disarmingly beautiful and unfailingly useful. It brims with essential information for the designer and maker of furniture, all of it lucidly explained and illustrated.

His book will be an enduring wellspring of inspiration--for its furniture, its photographs, and for the generous spirit of its writing."
