Professional Goldsmithing by Alan Revere
and Cheap Thrills in the Tool Shop by Charles Lewton-Brain,
both of whom I've been lucky enough have studied with. Absolute
must-haves, exceptionally well written. Alan's is more precise,
exacting : Charles' is much more seat-of-your pants. Wonderful
things can be gleaned from each, and often complement each other. I
have also been greatly thrilled learning from Brian Clarke
(Ireland), an amazing metalsmithing teacher, but I don't believe
he's published a book per se. Drat, Brian, write a book!
I am honored to have had such skilled hands shape mine.
