About this title


Samuel Yellin, Metalworker is a photographic essay and documentation about the master artist-blacksmith Samuel Yellin representing the culmination of 19th-century wrought iron design and fabrication. This book is the only attempt to record carefully the evolution of this artistic giant. In Philadelphia, from 1909 to 1940, Yellin created wrought iron work for major clients and architects throughout the US. There are the historic photos of Yellin and those who worked in this famous shop. Better are the many pages of his wrought iron, each piece speaking volumes. There are gates, railings, keys, locks, fireplace sets, lighting devices, and whimsical creatures. The scale of this work is sometimes overwhelming. There is a complete list of Yellin's works recorded on job cards. These cards will help researchers in locating samples of this incredible work. Samuel Yellin's masterpieces remain an important subject to examine, not only for blacksmiths but also for artists, architects, interior designers, historians, and anyone who works with or enjoys metalwork.

About the Author:

In 1972, Jack Andrews began blacksmithing by building his own forge, in a Tipi and teaching himself techniques a unique learning experience. As a result, he wrote a book about the fundamentals of blacksmithing: & Edge of the Anvil, a Resource Book for the Blacksmith; which is now rewritten as the ;New Edge.

In 1983, Andrews organized and designed the traveling show of the wrought iron work of Samuel Yellin, hosted by the Philadelphia College of Art. He organized three major workshops for aspiring blacksmiths that were held at the Yellin forge.

Later he worked as a design consultant at the Samuel Yellin, Metalworkers, from 1985 until 1990, with responsibility for the design of the wrought iron. His book Samuel Yellin, Metalworker; was the result of this exposure.
