Tim McCreight books


#1

Another new [to me, anyway!] McCreight book is Design Language - anyone
seen that? It’s in a catalog I got today of crafts books. He also has a
book called Metals Technic, which I have seen. That one is a series of
articles by other artists, such as Charles Lewton Brain.

Another one of Tim’s book is “Practical Jewelry Rendering” 1993
ISBN 0-9615984-4-1 Brynmorgen Press. I was just given this book by
an old rock hound. Don’t know whether I’d actually buy it, but if
you can pick it up for a reasonable price at a used book store it
has some instruction on what methods/materials/techniques to use to
achieve renderings jewelry, especially metal and faceted stones.
Also has some great head and hand pencil drawings that would be
good as background for jewelry pieces.

I have this book and I bought for a number of my friends for
Christmas and they all loved and now I have other friends who
want it. It really is about language and how we talk about our
work. Tim provides an always interesting view. I highly
recommend it for anyone, but especially for teachers, students,
writers, and curators. He designed the book to be used as a
tool, with space for your own notes and ideas. It is small
enough to fit into the back pocket of your jeans.
