As most regular Blog followers are aware, work is currently underway on the production of a completely new Kapp & Peterson Reference Book.
The editorial team involved in the books development had previously requested the assistance of Peterson pipe lovers the world over to provide suitable material, anecdotes, photos,catalogues etc.This has proven hugely successful and has necessitated additional time and effort to include as much as possible.We were tentatively looking to target 2014 for a completion date for publishing. However recent events have overtaken that original thinking.
We have just received some very good news from Tom Palmer (the Peterson CEO) this morning regarding the book:
1. Peterson will buy the book at wholesale from the publishers, Briar Books Press, to distribute internationally.
2. In tandem with this Peterson will issue a commemorative pipe(s)/book combination set for the 150th anniversary of Kapp & Peterson in 2015.
