Giving away ‘Genius of Japanese Carpentry’ book for free

Hey Lloyd:

Just thought your readers might like to know… we are giving away a copy of The Genius of Japanese Carpentry for free. It’s an excellent book… extremely awe-inspiring to see the images and drawings of some recent traditional temple renovation and construction in Japan. Mind-boggling timber framing and attention to detail. The title says it all. They don’t mess around.
