Format: Paperback
Murray Bovin's straightforward style of writing makes thiscomplex craft, if not easy to understand (let's face it, nodummy can learn metal smithing in the first place) at least well organized and readable. He takes us through an overview of tools and simple processes then on to forming techniques, plate and tray construction, box construction, spoons, picture frames, spouts (ssp is a short chapter), decorative processes and silversmithing and art metal projects. This is the first book to buy if you want to start smithing but don't live next door to Paul Revere.

Format: Paperback
This is the third book of Murray Bovin that has been updated and revised. This is in the style of the old school text books from the 1930's to the late 70's. They cover much more of what was thought you should know than well you can get by without it. With this knowledge data base as they call it now you will be able to over come problems and work stoppages that cause other to give up in the art metal field and to move on to something else.

The book has plenty of B&W pictures, charts and working drawings. The plans bring back the warm and fuzzy memories of shop class from 9th grade thru high school. They are mostly in the art deco, and 50,60's style that is now much sort after. I own it I use it and I enjoyed reading it.

This one is not for the have to have it at the end of the day crowd.
