Visual Guide to Blacksmithing by Susan Bove
Visual Guide to Blacksmithing

wyrdguy, April 11, 2014

This is a wonderful book with in depth pictures and descriptions. Paired with the the "Backyard Blacksmith" by Loralie Simms it makes a great start for any new smith wanting to get into the Craft. What it lacks in colored pictures it makes up for exacting information and processes.

The Backyard Blacksmith: Traditional Techniques for the Modern Smith by Lorelei Sims
The Backyard Blacksmith: Traditional Techniques for the Modern Smith

wyrdguy, May 31, 2013

Very informative if your looking to start smithing. contains tidbits on history,tips,and some of her own personal experiences.

Contains colored pictures of some of the processes and towards the end a selection of projects to try.

it heavily promotes the use of coal but one can actually find charcoal easier and just as good
