Help with books needed!

Hello all!
My name is Robert. I’m willing to get my hands on the book from Brepohl’s “The Theory and Practice of Goldsmithing”. I know it’s available in Amazon, however I’m from Argentina and that’s not a chance for me… at least for now.
I was willing to know if any of you know where I can buy a digital copy or at least if it exist so I can buy it and load it in my kindle and give it a try. I’ve been told it’s a great book and I want to read a bit more about silversmithing.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

BTW. I’m a self tought jewel-maker, working with my wife who’s the actual silversmith so any other suggestions about related e-books to buy or get (any subject as we do a lot of things and processes in our workshop) would be appreciated as well.

Thanks for your time!! hapy holidays :slight_smile:

Hello Robert, Brephol’s book is only published in a print edition by Brynmorgen Press and available directly from the publisher as well as from Rio. Silversmithing book: Creative Metal Forming (also from Brynmorgen). Jewelry Making: Complete Metalsmith (this is the dvd URL)
Professional Jewelry Making;

Hope this helps,

I suggest Tim McCreight’s books.

Hello Don!
Thank you for the suggestion. I’ll try to find a copy or an ebook. Sounds very interesting.
Thank you very much.
Happy holidays!

Hello Linda!
Thanks for the suggestions. I didn’t even know there were books in dvd format. It also states that it’s now available for download after purchasing it. Awesome.
Regarding the other book I saw it wandering around ebay. I didn’t know if it was worth it. I’ll now give it a try based on your suggestion. You can always learn one trick or another by reading different books so that’s perfect.

Thank you very much for taking the time to look them for me.
Happy holidays!

you are welcome.
