Jewelry Concepts and Technology by Oppi Untracht

Book description
Nearly ten years in preparation and production, Jewelry Concepts and Technology is the definitive guide and handbook for jewellery makers on all levels of ability. It is also a unique reference source for those not directly active in the field but who wish to gain an understanding of what lies behind the jewellery-making mystique. All traditional as well as innovative contemporary techniques are thoroughly described, making this. The more than 900 photographs in colour and black and white illustrate work of all degrees of complexity and show the incredible range of concepts which jewellers in all times, including today, incorporate in their work. Historic and ethnic jewellery, as well as contemporary work done by approximately 300 jewellers from twenty-six countries, are grouped under particular technical processes. This arrangement dramatically illustrates the mutual bonds between today's creative jewellers and their colleagues: historic style-oriented, and anonymous, tradition-dominated ethnic jewellers. The detailed text is accompanied by 377 illustrations showing tools and processes used to carry out particular techniques. In addition, thirty step-by-step photo demonstrations show master jewellers working from raw material to finished jewels, some of them revealing their methods for the first time. Supplemented by an extensive index, glossaries of jewellery forms and findings, and an international sources supply list, Jewelry Concepts and Technology is indispensable for anyone interested in any aspect of jewellery making.

La escuela granadina de guitarreros / The Granada School of guitar-makers by Alberto Cuéllar, David Gansz, Aarón García, Angelo Gilardino, Javier Molina, John Ray (coord.)

Book description
Con este libro, la Diputación de Granada pretende contribuir a sentar las bases del reconocimiento público de la escuela granadina de guitarreros y a llenar un hueco en la bibliografía especializada, ausencia que contrasta con su indiscutible valía, avalada por un gran renombre internacional. Los artesanos de la guitarra de esta ciudad, en la que se halla la más alta concentración de guitarreros de primera fila del mundo, son seguidores de una tradición que arranca con Eduardo Ferrer y que se ha transmitido hasta el día de hoy entre los constructores establecidos en Granada. En esta obra, musicólogos y guitarristas analizan la historia y la actualidad de la construcción de guitarras artesanas en Granada. Las entrevistas con los guitarreros realizadas por Alberto Cuéllar conforman la base de esta mirada fascinante a un oficio que forma parte de la cultura de la ciudad desde hace siglos. Su edición bilingüe español / inglés favorecerá la difusión internacional de esta industria artesana local, que atrae a una clientela de músicos y compradores de todas partes del mundo.
