Basics Of Style For The Artist-Blacksmith Max Metzger

S&H $5.00

This is a book that presents the basics of style particularly adapted for the artist-blacksmith. From the author: "This teaching of style should be easy to understand; and is presented without any material not relevant to the smith. It would be considered a success if it enabled the young smith to identify the period of a style with confidence; to copy an object with the particular characteristics of a style; and to know the conditions and requirements of a stylistically correct design." Translated from German with many illustrations.
