My favourite introductory handbook for hand and hot metalworking, particularly for smaller scales, silversmithing and basic jewellery

This book is a wonderful overview of most of the techniques of metalsmithing. The professional edition is sturdier for the most part than the older edition the book is designed to lat flat on the bench it is obvious it was designed by someone who designs functional objects for a living. It is the first book I recommend to anyone getting into metal work, from blacksmithing to jewelry making. It is a definite must-have and a classic of its kind. This said, if you get into any one technique more, specialty books are helpful, but this is the best overview out there… (mais)

From the website [www.amazon.com]
This book is a follow-up to the highly successful "Jewelry Fundamentals of Metalsmithing" and has the same high quality photos and practical information. In addition to featuring scores of exciting boxes by contemporary designers from around the world, the book describes dozens of hinges, catches and construction techniques in practical detail. Intended for intermediate metalsmiths, this book will not only teach you how to make that special hinge, but get you excited about what to do with it.
