Stamping is not only one of the most universal techniques in metalworking, but one of the most versatile. This long-awaited volume gives the technique the extensive coverage it deserves. Thoughtful attention to tools and materials provides a solid foundation for the step-by-step descriptions that make up the core of the book. More than three dozen specific stamps are presented in photographs that illustrate the steps used to make each one. A separate chapter is dedicated to showing how several stamps are used together to develop patterns. Further enriching the field, the author has conducted interviews with artists who specialize in stamping, collecting cultural history from around the world. Another welcome addition is the inclusion of a photographic archive of more than 300 historic stamps.
