Peterson Pipe Notes is the overflow from The Peterson Pipe: The Story of Kapp & Peterson, a full-length (exhaustive?) look at the history, pipes, and experience of Peterson of Dublin. Most of the blog is devoted to detailed information about Peterson shapes, lines and series–both visual and documentary that lie outside the scope of the book. None of it will find a direct place in the printed text, although the work here should be useful for two follow-up books.
The Peterson Pipe is forthcoming from Briar Books Press, and I hope will be out toward the end of 2017. It will be presented in large format, full color, with sections devoted to the history, pipes and experience of Peterson of Dublin.
I want to thank Tom Palmer (director) and Conor Palmer (commercial director) at Peterson, who have been extraordinary in their willingness to share news and the latest releases from Dublin for the blog. Thanks also to Tony Whelan, Jr., factory manager, who has answered more emails from me than anyone could expect, and all with grace and charm. My thanks also to everyone on the Blogroll who also contributed, most often in the use of their photography, but also in answering a host of questions. There’s some great Petes out there–just take a look.
