Trying to describe Terzi’s work, both ornamental and figural, in words is really beyond ability. It must be seen and in Mario Terzi Master Engraver the reader will see it in the exquisitely detailed, high resolution. That said, the reader should be prepared for a departure from the previous three books in the Italian series. The new Terzi book is far more colorful. This is true in both the sense of the color scale and the subject matter. For an Italian engraver, Terzi is using far more precious metal inlay than most of his contemporaries, and his use of enameled figures on some pieces adds richness to the colorful nature of his work and the book. In terms of subject matter, his fantasy scenes, replete with nudes and an assortment of realistic and stylized creatures, reveal an artistic imagination that separates Terzi from even the most adventurous engravers. - C. Roger Bleile, Author, American Engravers The 21st Century. Judged on a scale of one to ten, a critiquing scale with which firearms related books are usually rated, Mario Terzi-Master Engraver, rates a solid 100. This isn’t a misprint, as this vast (nearly 300 pages) large format book goes where gun books have never gone before, establishing new benchmarks for photography, production, editing, and quality for any such publications, raising the bar for the “coffee table” genre in general, be they about art, architecture, fashion, or furniture. 12 X 9, hardcover with slipcase, color photos, 288pp.
