Description

Blacksmithing provides a photographic introduction to blacksmith practices today, offering the novice and enthusiast an insight into this ancient trade.
 
Learn how blacksmiths heat the metal using a variety of methods, including electric induction and traditional coal-fired forges; see the huge range of items that a metalworker can produce, including wrenches, shovels, door plates, bicycle stands, and railings; see craftspeople practicing specialist metalworking techniques, such as upsetting, collaring, twisting, fullering, and swaging; and understand how blacksmiths respect the environment by using old iron ore and scrap iron. Illustrated with photographs that will inspire and delight, Blacksmithing is a dazzling pictorial celebration of a craft as old as civilization itself.
