- Ships' Figureheads Hansesn, Hans-Jürgen und Hansen< Clas Broder$23.95
This is the story of the carved wooden bow decoration that once adorned almost every stem of every wooden ship under sail. Hans Jürgen Hansen and Clas Broder Hansen begin with a report on the mythological origin of the bow decoration, which had a long life in seafaring superstition. It shows the development of figureheads from the Polynesians, Phoenicians, and Vikings to the high point of the gloriously decorated Renaissance and Baroque ships. Then it moves on to the imaginative, original variety of the figureheads of the 18th and 19th Centuries, the last windjammers and the school sailing ships that are still in use today. It details the different types of figureheads as well as the sculptors who made them.

Throughout time, the trade of blacksmithing has been surrounding by an almost magical aura. The smith produced the tools and the weapons that meant livelihood, life and maybe death.

Swedish Blacksmithing has found its place as a standard handbook for blacksmithing in all of Scandinavia and even in Germany. Now in the US too we can find descriptions, with complete technical instructions, of the whole process, from how to build a simple forge to the necessary tools and the basics of blacksmithing. The art of forging an axe is taught and the secrets of damascus are explained. Typical Swedish items for everyday use and knife making are also covered. All is done using dialogue between a contemporary blacksmith and his eager apprentice.
Over 400 drawings and photographs complete the experience and illustrate the contexts where words could fall short.
