Drew Fritts' New Marble Making Book!

Just got an e-mail from Drew, the book is at the printers and is due out in early March 2004!

Anyone wanting to pre-order his book, and from what I have seen of it, you will want it, go to the following web address for info!

http://frittsartglass.com/marbles/bo...lume1/TOC.html


Keep it round!

Re: Drew Fritts' New Marble Making Book!

Thanks for the heads up on this. I went and check out his site but wish I could of seen a few of the pages. Do you know if he has lots of images or graphics of how to techniques? I'm extremely visual and if there aren't a lot of pictures it will be tough for me to learn.
Thanks,
n

Hi;

I think your best bet would be to contact Drew himself. I only helped out with the written text. I believe that there is a good amount of pictures, but Drew would be the one to ask.

Hi npuffer,

There are over 320 illustrations throughout the 456 pages. Most are step-by-step diagrams. I opted for illustrations rather than photographs because I felt I could more clearly define the detail on which I wanted the user to concentrate. It sounds strange to say that less detail is better, but with a photo, the point that is trying to be made can easily be lost due to the fact that there is so MUCH detail. It's also very hard to get the proper perspective using photos. In the end, I was going to get complaints with whichever option I chose, but I felt strongly enough about it that I drew every one of them myself. It would have been a MUCH shorter process to put the book out had I simply taken snapshots as I was making marbles.
