Ferri Maestri (Gates and More by the Masters) by Antonello Rizzo
Artisan Ideas has just purchased a large quantity of this title from the publisher in Italy and we have been able to reduce the price from $203.30 to just $103!!
This is truly a monster of a book with 400 pages measuring 13 1/2 inches by 9 3/4 inches and weighing over six pounds!!! If you are a blacksmith or fabricator and produce fences or gates, you cannot go wrong with this resource produced especially for smiths by a smith.
You can examine hundreds of large high-quality color photos of new fences and gates produced by Italian blacksmiths from the years 2000 to 2007. There is a large range of types and styles of gates and fences in this valuable book from which you can obtain new ideas for your own creations.
This is a beautiful and useful book and we heartily recommend that you get yourself a copy at this price.
This massive 400 page book, although a stand-alone production, can also be considered the third volume of the 2 Volume set 'Gates and Railings' which is also sold by Artisan Ideas. Those beautiful first 2 books showcase the work of Italian smiths made in the 1990s. This new volume shows gates, railings and other work for homes and buildings which were produced after the 1990s.
Like the two first volumes, this book was put together by a smith for other professional smiths who produce gates, railings, and other metalwork for homes and buildings.
You will definitely get many design ideas from the excellent, high quality photos in this book.
The photo captions are in Italian but the text is of minor importance, if any at all. This book is worth every bit its price.
