Books: Scandinavian Pipemakers
Product Number: 001-119-0018
Now, four years of effort later, we are at last presented with this, the first edition of Scandinavian Pipemakers.
In his friendly and enthusiastic tone Jan Andersson takes through the histories of dozens of the most influential artisan pipemakers from Denmark, Sweden, and Norway (including all three Ivarssons), as well as that of Stanwell (which simply worked with too many influential pipemakers to be left out) and the Larsen factory. Valuable to the experienced collector and the initiate alike, Scandinavian Pipemakers covers everything from classic shapes and their distinctness from the freehands popularized during the "fancy" era, to the personal anecdotes of those who've known the creators of some of the most prized and rarefied briars in the entire history of the pipe - and all with a wealth of full-color photographs throughout.
Hardcover, 318 pages.
