Picture Framing Book "Frames and Framing" By Andy Parks

As well as the tools that I sell through this site, I have also written my own book all about picture framing. The book is aimed at the novice picture framer and covers all levels up to semi-professional. It is written in the same step-by-step style as the instructions that I offer with all the tools that I sell but with more depth and each stage has at least one photograph and / or illustration to help you progress on that skill. The topics covered in the book include:

  • Choice of tools
  • The working area
  • Choice of materials (probably the most important consideration in picture framing)
  • Cutting mounts
  • Cutting and assembling frames
  • Cutting glass
  • Fitting pictures
  • Hanging pictures
  • Double mounts
  • Multiple aperture mounts
  • Oval mounts and frames
  • Mount decoration
  • Stretching and framing of needlework
  • Stretching art on canvas
  • Framing 3-D works of art
  • Frame decoration (to name but a few topics)

The book can be signed and / or dedicated if you would like this option. Please make sure you specify what you would like me to write in the book at the check out stage. After you have purchased the book from me, please do think of me as an online resource and feel free to ask any picture framing questions.
