I love these ten “rules of thumb” painted on the wall of furniture-maker Wendell Castle’s studio, and hope that more than one apply to Princeton Architectural Press books. At least number seven: “If it’s off-beat or surprising, it’s probably useful,” I think that’s a pretty fair description of most of what we do.

Due to overwhelming demand for The Lost Christmas Gift, we’re sorry to report that we are completely sold out and do not expect more books in our warehouse this year. Copies are available at some Barnes & Noble stores—if you visit their website, select the ‘Pick Up in Store’ option and enter your ZIP code, you’ll see a list of stores where you can still find a copy.
We’re sorry we could not stuff every stocking with this book, and we are truly sorry for the inconvenience. You may still be able to find your own copy in time for Christmas, but if you can’t, we hope you’ll make it a part of your holiday tradition next year and for the years to come.
