Due to the Covid-19 lockdown across the UK, the warehouse in Glasgow where we store our stock and from which orders tend to be dispatched has closed for the foreseeable future to allow staff members to stay at home for the moment.
Nevertheless, we have a plan! We are able to remain open for business and to dispatch most orders.
When I was teaching at HEMAC Dijon 2017, there was a wonderful sight. In the hall where people left their baggage and where all the vendors set up their stalls, there was an entire wall of tables dedicated to publishing companies within the HEMA community. Five separate publishing companies had stalls next to each other, and it was incredibly rewarding to see that not only is there such a vast choice of reading material available to practitioners now, but also that most event participants lined up to look at the books and many people made purchases.
1) You made a reproduction of Donald McBane’s book The Expert Sword-Man’s Companion that we published back in 2015. Can you tell us a little about this book, and do you think it is still relevant for HEMA practitioners today?
1) Your most recent publication with us was Johann Georg Pascha’s Proper Description of Thrust-Fencing with the Single Rapier that we published in 2018. Can you tell us a little about this book, and how you came to write it?
