Contemporary Violin Makers

Would you like to gain an overview of the qualities of contemporary violin making?

In these two volumes, you can find summarized a representative selection of 80 violin makers from all around the world. Besides the first-class photographs of the instruments and impressive portraits of the violin makers, you will find the biography of each of the violin makers in English.

This publication is designed to grant the interested reader insight into the world of contemporary violin making. It is wonderfully easy to compare the instruments with each other with regard to their sculpture. Each luthier has documented his own style with one example instrument of his own choosing, allowing viewers to identify their personal favourite and, perhaps, to decide to pay him a personal visit at his workshop.

Measurement tables and addresses complete this certainly one-of-a-kind documentation. The photographs, taken by one of the world’s best photographers, guarantee the highest standards in precision and colour accuracy.
