"Mastering the Fundamentals of Leaf-Work" builds on the skills from his first book (BK782). This book is perhaps the most comprehensive work on organic forms.
In the first volume the basics of the stylized leaf and stylized flower are introduced. Mark expands on this in volume 2. He shows how to make the necessary tools for leaf-making. Tools ranging from crimping and leafing stakes to how to forge your own leafing hammer. Volume 1 and 2 shows how to make every tool you'll need and explains why in great detail. He shows the forged and formed rose and continues through a multitude of leaves such as the Cottonwood and Ginkgo, and the Acanthus Leaf. The book also covers the Stylized Bird and Split work as well. This book is a great tool for anyone wanting to get a better grasp on organic forging.
