In this new anthology, 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. This book is a must for every luthier’s library.
