Adam Kemp’s upcoming MAKE book, The Makerspace Workbench, is now available for sale as an early release ebook. Early release ebooks give you access to books in their earliest form — Adam’s raw and unedited content as he writes. You’ll receive updates to the ebook when significant changes are made, new chapters as they’re written, and the final ebook bundle.
And when the book’s in print, you’ll be able to find it on Maker Shed. We’re expecting the book to be in print in September, and you’ll see an announcement from us here when it’s available. And if everything stays on track, you’ll be able to buy them in person at World Maker Faire NY.
