Pre-order your copy of Tobacco of the Emperor today!
I’m excited to announce an additional new book form Headstamp Publishing: Tobacco of the Emperor, by Patrick Phillips. This is a guide to Japanese cigarettes and related material form the turn of the century until the endow World War Two. Beautifully photographed by James Rupley, it covers:
– General history of tobacco in Japan
– Tobacco in the Japanese military
– Japanese cigarette brands and packaging, and how they changed over time
– Related accessories like pipes, matches, cigarette cases, and lighters
– Foreign cigarettes used by the Japanese from China, Indonesia, Thailand, and elsewhere
We are making this book available for preorder in our ongoing Kickstarter for Clockwork Basilisk. You can order it as a standalone pledge or an add-on item. We are also offering a Japanese bundle of both our Tobacco and Swords books, along with six exclusive extras items – patches, bookmarks, and ex Libris labels for both books. Check it out here:

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
