Hastings Gold Leaf Book for Sale

Post by Andrew Lawrence »

After recently talking with John Hastings III today, I've been able to convince him to sell me a number of copies of his self published book "Hastings Gold Leaf." The book catalogs the history of and manufacture of gold leaf, the history of the Hastings company and an appendix that features a 23 page pamphlet called "Gilders' Tips" among other interesting articles like one on gilders humor.

If you would like to purchase a copy, they are $30 with $5 shipping for the 150 page hardbound book. Simply send $35 via Paypal to andrew@gentlemanscholarsigns.com and an address where the book should be shipped or Email me info on where to send a check.
