Lampwork Project Book includes
95 pages, filled with lampwork projects that originally appeared in a
series of training manuals that were created during World War II
for use in the rehabilitation of veterans returning from military
Each project includes a list of all the materials required and detailed, step-by-step illustrated instructions for creating your own lampworked masterpieces.
We've digitized the illustrations from one of those rare, original volumes, enlarged and cleaned them up where necessary, and reset most of the original text. We also updated the contents and added a new section of resources for today's lampworker.
|About now, you're probably
wondering just how much it's going to cost to get your hands on a copy
of this rare book...
The original training manuals were produced in quite limited quantities and distributed only to veteran retraining centers scattered around the U.S.
Like the World War II veterans they were created to assist, original copies of these texts are becoming more and more scarce as the years go by. And whenever complete volumes do show up on the rare book market, they can cost a small fortune.
But we've already scoured used book stores and searched rare book rooms all over the country in order to track this volume down so that you don't have to.
Now you can own this information without paying anywhere near the market price of one of those rare, collectible editions.
|Because we're offering this book
as a PDF-format digital download to be
read on your computer, you won't have to pay the high costs of printing
binding a hardbound book.
Nor will you pay the overhead expense of maintaining a warehouse full of printed books.
And, because it's digitally delivered anywhere in the world, you won't have to pay for shipping and handling.
