Then there are the creative projects and ideas... I think the book has just a great mix of everything. This is the kind of book that makes a good reference you can return to again and again.
Congratulations for a book well done!
This book is a great value for the price and I know it will be a continuing "go to" reference for me as I continue may quest to become a top notch silversmith.
But the working-photos are so dark that they're barely usable. Hattie (who is credited with the illustrations and photography) has taken great effort with her finished-piece photos to have the lighting excellent, but she clearly didn't bother with the step-by-step. There are many photos detailing the steps but they're so dark that the white worksurface looks dark-grey, and details are very hard to make out. It could have been solved easily by just adjusting the brightness/contrast and balance of the photos, or just making sure the work area was better-lit when photographing.
I'm so disappointed that an otherwise fantastic book is let down by such lack of attention to detail. With so many excellent books on the market, I just can't recommend this one, especially to anyone who is a very "visual" learner.
