About the Doublebit Press Legacy Edition Reprint Collection
Sometimes we need to remember our history to move forward. Sometimes, remembering our heritage is just fun or inspirational. But sometimes, remembering the old ways of doing things gives a human component to handcrafts and traditional arts. With technology playing a major role in everyday life, sometimes we need to take a step back in time to find those basic building blocks used for gaining mastery - the things that we have luckily not completely lost and has been recorded in books over the last two centuries. These skills aren't forgotten, they've just been shelved. It's time to unshelve them once again and reclaim the lost knowledge of self-sufficiency
