In 1998, Lost Word was created to serve as both the on-line retail outlet for Michael Poll Publishing, and as a supplier of unique Masonic gift items. As one of the very first on-line Masonic supply stores, Lost Word quickly rose in popularity, but always remained a small family store.
In 2004, Michael Poll Publishing was renamed Cornerstone Book Publishers and is active in both the publishing of Masonic classic reprints as well as the publishing of new Masonic titles and a variety of popular non-Masonic subjects.
While Cornerstone Book Publishers remains a small publisher, it continues to provide quality books to its readers. Our free search service is our hallmark and we are happy to search for any hard to find book.
