Are there any books or magazines relating to Metal Art?

| |

So there's some money burning a hole in my pocket and the Miller Spectrum 675 should be in the garage any day now (I can just feel it!). I've started cutting out any neat pictures of designs or ideas that I see in regular home decorating magazines and I've started a scrapbook of these ideas so that I can find them all very easily (something I'm sure not very many metal artists would even think of doing). I'm not planning on stealing anyones original artwork, but rather just the concept of the art and make it my own (just wanted to be clear that I appreciate copyright protection!).

Relevant Summary:

Title: "(Can't) Judge a book by its cover: METAL BOOKS: AN exhbition of the book as artifact."

Purpose:To explore the concept of encapsulating human imagination through the message of metal. If it looks like a book, reads like a book, feels like a book and swims like a book it may still be other than a book. A physical manifestation of imagination expressed through our common medium.

Favorite Metalworking Books

We've had many requests for suggested books on metalworking and I've combined a list of my favorite books plus a list from other professional metalsmith members of the ArtMetal community. The books listed are linked to the web site where you can order them directly from the links below. In fact, if you are considering purchasing any of these books, I would like to ask that you follow the link of the book you are interested in purchasing and ArtMetal will receive a small commission for referring you to the amazon book store when you purchase the book. It's a way that you can help us keep the site available on the internet as a free service to the metalworking community. If you have a favorite metalworking book that is not listed, please leave me a comment and I will add it to this listing. And if you find a book listed that you think it should not be listed as a favorite book, please let me know by commenting below.

Enjoy the knowledge of metalsmithing!
