Metzger

This is a classic and much sought-after German blacksmithing text which was translated into English in 2002 by Rudolf Baum.  Please see Metzgers' two other books we offer:  Basics of Style for Artist Blacksmiths, and Classical Techniques of Hand Forged Iron.  Reference works for Artist-Blacksmiths are rare; material on the production of patterns is virtually non-existent in recent publications. Thus it is most fortunate that this classic reference, Pattern Book for Artist-Blacksmiths, has been rediscovered and translated into English. This outsized reference shows techniques that will be extremely useful for your work: how to prepare patterns (stencils) for calyx, rosettes, leaves, cartouche, and scrolls, in Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo styles. The Pattern Book for Artist-Blacksmiths is of great practical value. Metzger's scrupulous exactitude in his drawings details the beauty and variations in design. Each design is clearly explained in the brief text.
