Pipestuff : Pipes and Tobaccos Magazine


SeradProclaim Liberty
Pipes and tobaccos’ former tobacco reviewer and current “Pipefuls” columnist, William Serad, has published his first novel, Proclaim Liberty.
Serad has spent years researching, participating in and writing about the hobby of historical reenactment. He weaves his interests in reenacting and history with his disappointment in modern American politics to craft a modern-day story that combines historical fact with conspiracy theory.
According to Serad, Proclaim Liberty is “a conspiracy theory with an understanding of old weaponry, a distaste for modern politics, and some heroics and explosions. An escape and an opportunity to learn a little history.”
Proclaim Liberty is available on Amazon.

RapaportTobacco and Smoking Among the Blue and Gray

Ben Rapaport’s Tobacco and Smoking Among the Blue and Gray is a well- researched treatise of smoking on the battlefields and in the camps and prisons during the American Civil War. This is the never-before-told story of the Union and Confederate soldiers’ reliance on tobacco and their creativity in fashioning wood pipes, one of the most enduring genres of patriotic folk art from the war.
The book is extensively illustrated with more than 100 soldiers’ pipes, many of which exhibit remarkable craftsmanship. The soldier’s hand-carved pipe tells an enduring American story of duty, sacrifice and patriotism. A long-overdue addition to American Civil War history, the 300-page book is a hardcover with jacket and features 175 black-and-white and color illustrations, recent auction results with the prices realized and an index.
