Dear Friends and Colleagues,  It is with great pleasure that we present 
information on our new book, Using Natural Finishes: Lime and Earth based 
plasters, renders and paints. A Step by Step Guide. The book covers all 
aspects of the preparation and application of wall finishes made from 
lime and earth.  It can be pre-ordered now, before shipping commences on 
March 10th, 2008.  We wish you a very fulfilling year, and we hope that 
you find our new book to be both informative and practical. Our desire is 
that this book can further encourage and make accessible the use of these 
traditional and ecological materials in both new and historic buildings.

Warm Regards,Adam Weismann and Katy Bryce
