“Definitely of interest…. (a book)our folks purchase.” – Jock Dempsey,

This technical book is aimed at the specialist ironworker but will also help trainees to gain a better understanding of their craft. It introduces a number of methods of working iron not normally found in association with scroll work, but lending themselves to designs akin in character to work executed prior to the early 18th century. The selection of techniques dealt with in this volume were chosen with the object of demonstrating to the craftsman and designer that quite a small number of ‘moves’ can yield a wider range of possibilities in design than might be expected. The techniques dealt with in this book can be applied over the whole field of decorative ironwork.

Originally published in 1962, this edition has been carefully reproduced in its original format to retain the appeal of the original text, photographs and drawings that have for so long proved to be a valuable source of reference.
