American Engravers - The 21st Century is a beautiful full color coffee table format book, containing a CD-ROM bound into the back of the book. The CD will feature a directory of engraving schools and private instructors, a directory of manufacturers and vendors, an engraving glossary with over 400 illustrations, and a special section called Tools and Techniques of the Hand Engravers. This section will familiarize the readers with all of the tools we use (both manual and powered) as well as step by step illustrated explanations of scroll engraving, relief engraving, and gold inlay. Along with the pictorial sections where individual engravers are featured with hundreds of images of guns, knives, jewelry, and western gear, the author has written a chapter on the state of our art in the 21st century. In addition, R. L. Wilson has written a 20 page illustrated chapter on the history of American engraving, and publisher has added a chapter on how to determine the values for engraved firearms in today's marketplace. 12 X 9, hardcover, photos, 360pp.
