NEW COVER: IN FOCUS
For a limited time only, The Strad is issuing the first in the In Focus series with a beautiful, new limited edition cover.
In Focus is one of The Strad’s classic products and a bestseller. Published in hardback, it includes articles on makers including Antonio Stradivari, Guarneri ‘del Gesù’ and G.B. Guadagnini, as well as lesser-known masters such as Paul Knorr, Dante Baldoni and Charles Nicolas Altermatt.
NEW BOOK: IN FOCUS 2
In the new anthology, In Focus 2, every instrument has been given three pages to include more close-up photographs, archings, angles and tiny details. Makers such as Antonio Stradivari and Guarneri ‘del Gesù’ rub shoulders with lesser-known names such as Alfredo del Lungo, David Stirrat and Willem van der Sijde, with each article including biographical details as well as points of interest regarding the instrument’s form and construction.
Published in a light softback version, In Focus 2 is a must for every luthier’s library.
