The selection of the presented personalities and work is amazing. The text (in German and English) introduces the seven chapters and presents eight outstanding blacksmiths, including a young, promising metal artist. Michael Ertlmeier is from the Upper Bavarian. A full chapter in the new yearbook gives, for the first time a comprehensive idea of the work by this young smith.

The extensive chapters in the 2010 yearbook will leave many colleagues with their tongues hanging!
