David Freedman has taken the art of blacksmithing in a new direction. His metal work ranges from giant insects in the woods of Scotland to seaweed inspired gates on the Cornish coast, ethereal deer in the ancient forests of England and organic seats in some of the UK's finest historic gardens. David's unique sculptural metalwork is shown here at its best, set within the landscape that inspires its creation. David has been forging creative metal sculptures, delicate copper water features, decorative wrought ironwork gates and much more for over 20 years from his backyard workshop in the UK. Rather than a beginner's guide or a blacksmithing manual, this book is more than a catalogue of David's work, with stunning photographs, design notes and sketches as well as perspectives from blacksmiths around the world and a look into the forge, past and present, giving a unique window into the ancient yet ever evolving blacksmith's craft. This collection is also a source of inspiration for those interested in garden design and garden art as well as public sculpture. David is also a writer of articles and fiction. His children's book Stunt Crow is available on Amazon and Jewel of The Brook is forthcoming.

This unique annotated bibliography lists nearly 300 books on the art of blacksmithing. It is divided into four parts: Practical Black­smithing, Specialized Areas of Blacksmithing, Historical Background of the Profession, and Products of the Forge. Part 1 deals with the technical side of blacksmithing: the texts, manuals, and courses aimed at teaching the basic pro­cesses. It includes reference books on the materials of blacksmithing and on metallurgy. Part 2 presents the more specialized and advanced processes of blacksmithing, includ­ing ornamental ironwork, farm smithing, industrial forging, and bladesmithing. It also includes materials related to pattern-welded Damascus steel. The listings in part 3 deal with black­smithing as a literary and historical subject. The primary focus of these books is on the traditions, lore, and descriptions of the trade. In these books the processes, tools, and prod­ucts are of only secondary importance. Part 4 lists books that treat the products of the forge, a wide-ranging area that covers everything from tools and utensils to archi­tectural works. A special feature of this section is a chapter emphasizing individual smiths and their works. The book also con­tains two indexes, one an alphabetical listing by author and one an alphabetical listing by title.
