On Kindle and in paperback - preorders will be available soon!

Showcasing a selection of razor and shaving related patents – some of them important in the development of the modern safety razor, others are interesting, inessential, or plain odd – "70 razor and shaving patents" explores some of the roads not taken to get to the daily bathroom routine of making faces hairless we know and enjoy.

Congratulations, Hans! I’ve enjoyed reading your Tuesday morning posts for a long time. The cover artwork is perfectly done. You must feel a great sense of accomplishment. Many years ago I released a CD of all original music. It was a major rush! Good luck, my friend. Wet shavers the world over are sure to be pleased.

Cheers

Posters of some of the more intricate patent drawings is an idea I haven't considered... got to poke and see what online services for print on demand posters might be available Biggrin

Great job Hans. Congrats!!! 

When I read the title I thought you had done something on razors of the '70s and were going to detail razor history decade by decade via patents and advertisements of those advancements in production. An idea for another day perhaps.

Thank you guys Smile

Doing a decade by decade patent history could be a fun project for later... or perhaps do a short book in just brush- or blade-patents...
