chiseling metal work

Metalwork Leland; Charles G.

S&H $5.00

Norm Larson Books This work contains an explanation of the processes of cold metal work; chiefly as applied to decorative or industrial art; and especially with a view to their being taught to children in elementary and preparatory schools. The author believes that it may be regarded as thoroughly adapted to this purpose; he having been founder and director for four years of the industiral art classes in the public schools of Philadelophia; in which some of these branches of metal work were taught with great success. The principle which guides this book is that the rudiments; or first and easiest stages of anything to be mastered; must be very thoroughly acquired; and no step forward be allowed till the pupil is really a master in all that has preceded it.

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.

Nahum Hersom Repousse Jerry Henderson - Editor

S&H $5.00

From introduction by Jerry Henderson: Repousse' means to repeal in French; the craftsmen that did repousse' work were called embossers. There are two methods of embossing; one is cushion; the other is support. The support method is sometimes called stake repousse. The skill of the embosser is to put the hammer blows in an overlapping pattern so as to make a perfect line or pattern. This book documents Nahum Hersom's workshop and parts of his handwritten workbook. The value of this book is to give the blacksmith and other metalworkers a foundation to do detail and definition work; specifically ornamental metal. The German method of embossing is what Nahum Hersom teaches; he learned his craft from Mr. Valatine Goelz. The tools in this book are more general; the techniques are more specific.
