Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine a world with no guitar picks. Nothing but muted mandolins and bare-fingered banjos. No sounds of Doc Watson, Chet Atkins, or Stevie Ray Vaughan. You might as well imagine a song without a tune. This eye-catching book full of stunning color photos looks at the history of the pick and includes fantastic picks of every shape, design, and material. Also includes a commemorative pick

Synopsis:

This guide covers all kinds of picks: fantastic picks of assorted shapes and designs--made of ebony and ivory, stone and silver; kaleidoscopic, translucent celluloid picks in stunning colors; miniature works of art; engineering marvels, complete with wire loops, corks, and corrugated holes, and more. 120 color photos.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 101-102) and index.
