Have had this fantastic book An Age of Barns for a few years, nabbed it from Pops, but just now started to dig around the late author/illustrator Eric Sloane. This post will barely scrape the surface of his work but hopefully an fyi. Bio below paraphrased from SloaneAwareness and EricSloane. Usually don't post huge chunks like this but good stuff... Born Everard Jean Hinrichs in New York City (1905) he later changed his name to Eric to reflect his American origins —he pulled "eric" from the…

Okay, it's pretty obvious I haven't done much with the blog lately, which sadly means I haven't done much in the shop lately either. It was a summer of travel and training, and while both were excellent, it was way, way too much. Now I'm back, but school has started up again and I'm buried.
