George Sherwood, who passed away over a decade ago, wrote and published a book for firearms engravers: Firearms Engraving Theory and Design. After seeing many years of publication, the book recently went out of print.
However, GRS couldn’t let this gem slip quietly into the “out of print” pile. Sherwood was good to share his knowledge and art with others through his book, and we believe it should continue to be shared. Having recently acquired the rights, GRS will soon be putting the Sherwood book back into publication.
With this second edition printing, featuring lay-flat wire binding for an easier study, we wanted to share a few drawings by Sherwood from his book. He shows here some variations on stacking scrolls, as well as styles of leaves to use as filler. His book is filled with nice examples of his work, drawings, and templates for firearms engraving.
Look for details on the upcoming second edition to be announced soon!
