A trusty companion for the slow and thoughtful home and the inner utilitarian in us all- The Kaufmann Mercantile Guide: How to Split Wood- Shuck an Oyster and Master Other Simple Pleasures allows you to experience the singular satisfaction of doing it yourself. Each project- whether caring for cast iron or planting with the seasons- is supplemented with expert tips to inspire and empower. Organised into five sections--Kitchen- Outdoors- Home- Gardening- and Grooming--the comprehensive guide features detailed instructions and original artwork for tasks both simple- such as brewing the perfect cup of coffee and exploratory- such as fording a stream and reading the sky. Accompanying the how-tos are tried-and-true products selected from the Kaufmann Mercantile store that not only help one get the job done but are also a joy to use.

We hope you- like us- find inspiration in these pages to experiment- to investigate- to create- and to enlighten your everyday.... Please click here to ask a question
