August 2014

Dear Friends:

After about two years, countless revisions, innumerable meetings, hundreds of discussions, late nights and weekends, revisions, rewrites, product developments, go-no go decisions, more rewrites and more revisions, and many, many photography sessions, I am very pleased to tell you our all new 2015 Catalog 23 is at the printer!

Yours will be "in the mail" (like the check!) in September.

Trust me, it has been a lot of work. But we think you’ll agree it is all worth it.

Catalog 23Everybody here pitched in proofreading and commenting, but a special thanks must go to our art director whose vision this is: Andrea León Grossmann. Here’s her cover âžœ

We are extremely proud of our existing product line and the innovations we are bringing to market. New products, and updating old ones, is a challenge, a headache, and among the most rewarding aspects of our work. It is equally frustrating and exhilarating.

Some new products (usually mine) are brilliant and we cannot give them away. Others seen as prosaic or ho hum fly out the door. Go figure. At the end of the day my theory is to introduce the new idea/design and let you decide. Your judgment is the best.

Please let me know what you think of Catalog 23 at [email protected]. Call/email us with your comments and observations, positive and not-so-positive.

Enjoy August and the rest of the Summer.

Best Regards,
Douglas A. J. Mockett
