"A new book by UK luthier Nigel Forster and photographer Dave Best - the result of a two year long collaborative project. The book contains hundreds of superb photographs of the guitar building process, and in a series of essays Nigel discusses his training, approach and his views on instrument design and construction. Known for making fine acoustic steel string guitars, mandolins and instruments of the Celtic bouzouki family, Nigel was trained by, and for many years worked with well regarded English luthier Stefan Sobell. This book is the first real insight into a style of building which has intrigued and inspired both players and makers. A book that should inspire amateur and professional builders, players and collectors alike. Sure to become a favourite amongst lutherie enthusiasts." - blurb from another bookseller
