New from Calina C. Shevlin


New book: GUILLOCHÉ: A History and Practical Manual

According to the Amazon description of this new book by Calina C. Shevlin, "Guilloché is the decorative engraving of a metal surface, such as watch cases, cufflinks, or the Fabergé Egg, with the use of a hand-powered device called a rose engine.

This passionately researched book tracks the birth, decline, and revival of this endangered craft and features exclusive information from the world’s few living professional guillocheurs, as well as an exploration of the distinction between guilloché and its forebear, ornamental turning.  Authoritative text, gallery and detail photographs, dynamic illustrations, and precise, hand-drawn renderings will assist and delight adventurous craftspeople, machinists and engineers, and steampunks alike."
