[Book] Revere's new Professional Goldsmithing


#1

Revere’s new Professional Goldsmithing Book a rare treat!

HI All,

Just got the new Alan Revere ‘Professional Goldsmithing’ edition
from Brynmorgen Press. This one was edited by Tim Mcreight, who
brings his amazing skills in graphic design and layout to this
classic, wonderful, enlarged book.

This edition is significantly improved and increased over the
previous version. It is wonderful, excellent. Many more details, and
many more project step-by-steps.

This book is a historic moment. A monument. A real and lasting
contibution to our field. A serious, lovely, fantastic work. If you
did every project 3-5 times you would be a pretty good goldsmith.
Some people use it as a living dictionary: leaf quickly through the
pages until you see the thing you are looking for and there you have
it.

My congratulations to Alan, to Tim, both of whom have changed the
world, our world, the scene of jewelry making and metalsmithing.

Superb!! Thankyou for bringing us this monumental work! Excellent.
Every jeweler should have this book, and every student needs it.

Whoo Hoo!

I will second this. It is a nicely revised and improved volume.
Alan’s clear instructions and well chosen projects coupled with
Tim’s wonderful book design make this a must have. As Charles says
if you can work your way through these projects a couple of times
you will have a wealth of goldsmithing skills under your belt.

Disclaimer, I did some technical editing on the metallurgy section
of the book but have no financial interest in it.

Did you get this book in advance of general release? The Revere
website says, “second edition coming soon!” – and amazon appears to
have only the older edition.

I must beg the question. We all want every book, I am sure, just like
we want all tool available, but knowing both are impractical! Is
there enough change or addition for us who have the first edition to
"need" get the new edition?
