Synopsis: Now in paperback, a practical manual on picture framing, from the construction of a basic wooden frame to more ornate creations. Includes advice on repairing and restoring damaged frames. First published in 1986.

From Library Journal: "A well-framed picture on which thought and skill have been lavished should have double the sensual impact of a picture neatly boxed by a competent local framer," writes MacNamara. This beautifully illustrated manual emphasizes more the baroque than the basics of frame design and construction, covering such topics as moulding and mitre cutting for all mouldings; gesso, finishes, and gilding; and making oval, box, floating, tray, lunette, and Georgian print frames. This work was first published in Great Britain in 1986 and has not been "translated" for the American reader. Although recommended tools and materials are undoubtedly available in the United States, brand names may be unfamiliar. This aside, the author provides information on the reproduction and repair of antique and ornamented frames that is hard to find elsewhere. Recommended for subject collections and academic libraries.
