With the publication of each issue of Mortise & Tenon magazine, we receive numerous requests for back issues from new fans of the magazine. The earliest issues have been unavailable for a while, so we are delighted that M&T has decided to publish the first three issues in a hardbound book, straightforwardly entitled “The First Three Issues.” The First Three Issues is not only a republication of the magazines; there are bonus essays by M&T’s editors that might induce a purchase even if you have one or two of the back issues -- Prologue: How Not to Start a Magazine, by Joshua A. Klein; Afterword: Revolution & Revelation by Jim McConnell; and Epilogue: Issue Three & Beyond by Michael Updegraff -- along with a Foreword by Christopher Schwarz of Lost Art Press.

The book is printed on heavy, matte-coated paper with a sewn binding that is appropriate for the in-depth, timeless explorations of woodworking that M&T offers. 496 pages. Printed in the USA.
