STORY IN STONE REPRINT Illustrated by the late Valerie Waldorf with text by D.C. Waldorf. The last of the original print Story In Stone books were sold out about ten years ago and since then I have been asked numerous times “do you still have any copies left at all?” The answer was “no, just the three I kept for myself,” and to that I would tell them the reasons why. Due to the considerable amount of material in that book being long out of date, or invalid, I didn’t want to go to the expense of having it reprinted by a professional print shop when about 3/4 of the original illustrations are now featured in the Master Knapper’s Guide Series along with much more updated information. So why put it back in print again? For those that still want one I now have the equipment to print single copies on demand that are as good as the original! I spent about a week, off and on, scanning all 240 pages of the one, un-bound, pristine copy I have. This was done in high resolution, 600 DPI, black and white, then the scans were loaded into a Publisher file so the pages can be printed out on my professional grade Ricoh copier. Needless to say, very little, if anything was lost in the scanning, and the new copies are almost indistinguishable from the originals! The only difference is the back cover is plain cream cover stock while the UV coated front covers are extras left over from the last commercial printing. Since none of the original, circa 1987, content has been changed those things that are out of date, or in error, remain as such, so a preface has been added to deal with the faulty material. Getting back to the reasons why those that still want a copy of this out-of-date book is mainly for the illustrations. These were the best, and still are! Many times at knap-ins I have seen a much used Story In Stone lying next to a guy busy chipping away while trying to make a flint copy of that which he sees on one of the pages. 240 pages, 727 line art illustrations, comb bound, 8 ½ x 11. Price, $60.
