From the cover: “This easy-to-follow guide is designed to show how picture framing skills can be acquired and used for pleasure as well as for saving money. Starting with an informative section on the historical development of picture framing in Europe, the author describes, with the clarity born of practical experience, the steps involved in making a simple frame on which more elaborate frames may be based. Mount cutting, reproducing from antique mouldings, finishes and gilding are all dealt with in a concise and readable form. Several of the techniques were developed or modified by the author himself in the process of learning about the subject and teaching it to students over a number of years. Having constructed the basic frame, the reader can then tackle the more complicated variations such as the oval, box and spandrelled frames.”
