DESCRIPTION & CONTENTS
Very interesting book. We call it a book in a manner of speaking.
The work consists of a box case with gold stamping and lined with imitation Imitlin fabric, 34 fold-out 4-section photographs inside, and a jacket with dry relief in the middle. 34 life-size photos of historical guitars made by 31 of the best guitar makers in the history of Traditional Guitar Making. You can also see detailed and high-definition photos of the rosette and back of the guitars and an introduction of each guitar maker’s biography.
The 34 folded photographs can be viewed separately as you see in the photos and video you find here in Madera.
The interesting thing here is also that you have in front of you the real size guitar you can explore at last details in very high definition image quality and with the actual measurements of the guitar. This way you can take measures of the different parts of the guitar and compare them with your own guitars from your collection or with the other guitars that appear in the book and you can see from these guitar makers the evolution of the guitar from the 19th century (1856) to our days (2008) and the different aesthetics and styles that these great guitar makers have used along history for their guitars.
This book is probably the pinnacle in the excellent work done in Paris by Alberto Martinez and Clémentine Jouffroy who are doing to make known in their published books the extraordinary history of classical guitar and traditional guitar making.
An exceptional book in quality of photos, concept, design, and historical interest.
