An attractive, well-designed frame not only enhances a picture but preserves and protects it. Logan, a contributing editor at Artists' Magazine who has taught framing and matting across the United States, shows readers how to present their artwork skillfully and economically. A great deal of planning is essential for success: Logan shows how to compose the entire presentation so that it will be aesthetically pleasing. Some of the tools and materials required are fairly common (e.g., saws and molding), while others are more esoteric (e.g., museum-grade matboard). Logan does a great job of explaining everything and supplements the text with attractive photos, which will be a helpful resource for beginners to copy. There is something here for framers of all skill levels. Recommended for most public library collections.
