Hobart, WA (PressExposure) December 23, 2008 -- Blacksmith Zone has just released a new section of their website that has all of the Blacksmithing Books. This is part of a new community website that is all about Blacksmithing. Members and non-members can visit this Blacksmithing page on the Blacksmith Zone website for free at: [http://www.blacksmithzone.com].
Here is an excerpt from the new Blacksmith Books information webpage:
âUnder the spreading chestnut tree, The village smitty standsâ¦.â Although not a book, Longfellowâs famous poem captures the image and spirit of the blacksmith. The way he works and the quality of his products has changed immensely since the poem was written, the image of the blacksmith it conveys is one that many people still hold in their minds today. But like all production processes, that of the blacksmith has become very technical and sophisticated and there is today an ever growing list of books, magazines and online articles dedicated to the art of blacksmithing. While the number of books available will fill a reasonably sized library, there are some that may be of interest to the aspiring blacksmith or metal artist.
â¢ Edge of the Anvil by Jack Andrews. Acknowledged by many as one of the best books on the art of the blacksmith, starting with the basics and progressing to fairly advanced concepts, theory and practices, this book is written in a style that makes it easy to read and understand, even for someone with no knowledge of blacksmithing. Especially useful for the metal artist, it contains some fairly advanced material including a chapter on how CAD maybe used for designing decorative metal work.â
