This publication is designed to share rare insight into the world of contemporary violin-making. Two magnificent volumes offering a full overview of contemporary violin-making at its very best, by exploring a representative selection of 80 of the world’s finest violin makers. Both volumes are illustrated with clear and concise photography of an array of stunning contemporary instruments alongside portraits and biographies of each of the makers.

The two volumes examine each luthier’s unique style by documenting the individual’s approach and applied techniques by focussing on a single crafted instrument of each luthier’s own choosing allowing viewers to identify instruments and workmanship most interests them. They offer a rare opportunity to gain insight into a specific luthier if you are considering purchase of an instrument or would like some inspiration on instrument-making. Each book contains measurement tables, colour accuracy to a fine degree, and exceptional photography.
