Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Beginning with a good historical survey of writing implements, [the authors] first tackle equipment and basic pens and pencils, then cover style, methodology, and material variations. Some of the more unusual inclusions are pens of antler or checkered polymer clay, and instruments embellished by inlay and wood burning. The last chapter offers selling tips.” —Booklist

Synopsis:

Here is the definitive guide to fashioning writing instruments, with superb photography that goes close up and clarifies every procedure. Turning pens and pencils is a quick, fun, and inexpensive way to express your design sense; the equipment is minimal but the possibilities are many. There are ones that twist or click, a European-style pen, a tapered rollerball, fountain pens, and numerous variations. Tips reveal which jigs and fittings increase efficiency. Bonus: an impressive gallery of finished items.
