Welcome to Against the Grain Books
Against the Grain Books.com is a series of wooden sculptures fabricated into the shapes of books. Each book is printed with an original title and will be placed in various libraries throughout the Southern California region and beyond. For a nominal fee of $20.00 plus tax, shipping and handling, you can sponsor a book. The $20.00 helps pay for the materials and time spent creating and delivering the book to its destination.
Against the Grain Books.com is no longer offering a second book for your collection. When you are in PayPal please limit your cart to one book per title. If you would rather pay by check or money order feel free to contact us at tasmith10@againstthegrainbooks. We will give you more information on where to send the check.*
