Super Formulas, Arts and Crafts.

For those who have enjoyed the formulae from "the lady beekeeper" in recent issues of Countryside, (including the one on page 61 in this issue) here's good news: she has gathered more than 360 recipes for useful products that contain honey or beeswax into one book.

These include everything from adhesives, arthritis wax treatment and art mediums, to waterproofing, wax (bleaching) and wood finishes.

While the book was written specifically for beekeepers, its appeal is much broader. Artists and crafters will find much of value here... and we think all self-reliant homesteaders will find it useful even if they don't keep bees. In addition, it will provide good reading for anyone who is simply interested in old-fashioned ways of doing things: make carbon paper, waxed paper, soap, mock marble, candles, and hundreds of other items.

The book includes a fist of mail order suppliers, conversion tables, and an index.
