We all know that there has been an almost volcanic amount of new publications on the violin in the last 30 years, but perhaps there are some gaps. Please express what you think might help you as a maker, which has not yet been published, or has not been explored or researched as thoroughly as you would like. Since it's obvious that any area can always be studied more, the idea is ALSO to find what you think needs the most immediate attention. Of course, since few of us can know all the literature already out there—in whatever form—if you know of something that has already been written on a mentioned subject, please give the title and any information you can. Edit: As of Sept. 1, there have been around 20 suggestions. I'm posting them here so new readers don't have to read the whole thread to find them. Please add to the list if you wish. #3 Urban Luthier— An Amati family exhibition and catalogue; A follow-up for the Brandmair/Greiner Stradivari varnish book; A Koen Padding varnish book. #4 violadamore—German and central European violins of the 19th-20th centuries #5 Don Leister— Michael Darnton's book; A book on Stradivari in the same format as the Biddulph Guarneri book #6 Carl Stross— "The Cremonese System of Violin-Making," by Nicolo Amati #12 Berl Mendenhall— Daily life in Cremona #14 Melvin Goldsmith—Ventral pins; A book on observational techniques #17 Don Noon—A step-by-step Illustrated Guide to Believable Antiqued Varnishing $29 Julian Cossman Cooke— Translations of good books in other languages into English #30 Michael Molnar— A translation of Otto Mockel's "Die Kunst des Geigenbaues #31 Urban Luthier—The importance of preserving what is on forums like Maestronet #57 sabaugher—An encyclopedia of resins, woods, minerals, and other substances used in violin making #93 addie— A proper photo catalogue of Stradivari's tools #113 Peter KG— A similar site to Wikipedia: WikiStrad #119 cello_dabbler—videos that "capture some of the real hands-on aspects of making #123 c.t.—"A brief compendium of waht we already know about violin making" #127 Bruce Tai—Scientific analysis of wood used by the Cremonese masters; Daily life #131 robertdo—dendrochronology #134 Urban Luthier—3D models from captured data #135 Stephen Faulk— Book on hagiography (OOPS!
