Welcome to Fox Chapel Publishing's Digital Catalog Site

Posted: 2017/02/20

Fox Chapel has launched a new on-line “Digital Catalog,” to provide our wholesale customers with a new level of convenience, customer service, and support, while still maintaining our traditional level of personalized customer support. 

The new site is a Digital Catalog, not an E-Commerce site.  Customers go to the site and easily browse all of our books, and fill in a “preliminary order.”  Within one business day an actual living and breathing Fox Chapel Account Manager will contact you.  The account manager will provide your cost, shipping details, payment terms, and then submit your order.  If you need an immediate response, an account manager is only a phone call away at 844-307-3677.

The new site is organized identically to our 2016 book catalog.  Both catalogs are organized around Fox Chapel’s six core subject areas.  Within each subject area, the books are listed by category.  Each category starts off with our new titles, followed by our best sellers, followed by our full backlist.

To get started, click any of the category headers, or browse by catalogue.  While browsing, enter in the quantities you are interested in, and fill in your contact information by clicking either "Review" or "Order Now." 

When you are done your “preliminary order” will be sent to an account manager and you will be contacted within 24 hours to confirm your order.  As always, 95% of our orders ship within 24 hours. 

Thank you for your patronage, and enjoy,
Fox Chapel Publishing

In Hand Carving Your Own Walking Stick, award-winning woodcarver
David Stehly raises carving to a true art form, as he walks the reader
through the process of making artisan-quality sticks, staffs, and canes
that are as functional as they are beautiful.

An intricate hand-carved Noah’s Ark is a true folk art classic, and
professional wood carver Betty Padden makes it easy in Carving &
Painting Noah’s Ark
. Betty reveals her original layered techniques for
transforming this major project into simpler, doable carvings, while
adding a touch of whimsy along the way.

Speaking of original techniques, pyrography artist Jo Schwartz has
developed a dazzling method for turning photographs into custom
portraits. She shows how to use her smooth shading technique to
create beautiful portraits that resemble old, sepia-colored photos in
Woodburning Realistic People.

Author and woodworking instructor Scott Wynn teaches how to
choose, set up, maintain, and master the basic variations of an
indispensable hand tool in Getting Started with Handplanes. Scott’s
book provides an essential guide for every modern woodworker who is
interested in using this valuable time-honored tool.

It has been 20 years since we launched Woodcarving Illustrated,
the publication that has grown to be the world’s largest magazine
dedicated to the art and craft of woodcarving. I’m proud of the role
that we continue to play in sharing the knowledge of today’s leading
carvers with both beginning and advanced enthusiasts. I’m especially
gratified by our efforts to involve a new generation of carvers, as we
reach out to them digitally through the web and social media.
