The Pipe: A Functional Work of Art

We received a couple of copies of this wonderful coffee-table book about pipes, pipe carving, & even a little bit about pipe tobacco. Here’s a wonderful review of this tome by Stephen:

Enjoying a pipe and reading a good book often go hand in hand. And not so much a digital edition but rather a solid book made of real pages that can be rifled between the fingers. THE PIPE: A Functional Work of Art is even more than that! It is a lovely, illustrated coffee table book that is beautiful to behold and substantial in its contents.

Have you ever wanted to know the ins and outs of the craft that is pipe making? This tome will answer all your questions and will do so in style. The illustrations/photos are rich and artfully rendered. They fully immerse you in the world of pipes and pipe makers.

Speaking of pipemakers, especially the Danish masters, their names roll off the tongue. Lars Ivarsson, Nanna Ivarsson, Tom Eltang, Anne Julie, Suhr, Manduela, Poul Ilsted, Tao, Teddy Knudsen, Kent Rasmussen, Poul Winslow, Nording, and on and on. Fascinating accounts of their art is readily available in this book.

Besides the fundamentals of pipe lore and the personal stories of noted pipemakers, there is also a discussion of factory-made pipes and the wonderful tobaccos we pack them with.

Put your tablet or cell phone down and pick up a copy of THE PIPE: A Functional Work of Art. Fill your bowl with your favorite blend of pipe tobacco. Light your pipe and revel in the delicious wisps of smoke as they curl about your head. Turn the pages of superbly designed publication and learn about the art of the pipe, the art you are so passionate about.


If you wish to win a copy, all you need to do is buy any pipe worth $100 or more and you’ll be entered. We will be doing a draw on November 22nd and another draw on December 22nd. Good luck to all entrants!
