The Strad Calendar 2019 brings together twelve of the finest instruments ever made by Antonio Stradivari.

With high-resolution photographs all taken by Jan Röhrmann, this is the first time in a decade that the Calendar has been devoted exclusively to Stradivari instruments.

Guadagnini, and it’s an essential resource for anyone seeking to extend their lutherie knowledge into areas and makers whose work is more rare, and a significant addition to the lutherie literature.

Antonio Stradivari ‘Cecil’ violin 1724 poster – worth £19.95

Despite coming from Stradivari’s late period (he was 80 at the time), the hand of the master, rather than that of his sons, is clearly identifiable all over the instrument. The poster includes full measurements, outlines of the back, scroll, f-holes, and front and back archings, as well as thickness maps and the rib heights.

‘Vieuxtemps’ Guarneri ‘del Gesù’ 1741 poster – worth £19.95

Currently the most expensive violin in the world, the 1741 ‘Vieuxtemps’ Guarneri ‘del Gesù’ was sold in 2012 for a sum in excess of $16 million. As well as full measurements, the back of this poster contains detailed CT scans, thickness maps and actual-size cross-sections of the archings. The violin still remains in a remarkable state of preservation, especially considering it has been in use for most of its life.
