Martin Frost purposely makes art most people won’t see. That’s not because it’s all hanging in some obscure museum or small gallery; it’s because he’s a vanishing fore-edge painter. The art form, which dates back to the 1600s, involves painting pictures on the edges of books that remain hidden unless the pages are pulled in a specific way. Frost is the last working fore-edge painter in the world, so he’s all that stands between the style meeting its demise. Great Big Story did a fantastic video about his process and the style itself.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
