“Brian Derber’s comprehensive and meticulously detailed book will be an invaluable adjunct…as a supplement to hands-on instruction, this work is a unique and welcome addition to the small body of literature on violin making, and should be recommended for any serious student of the craft. Violin school instructors should embrace it as a valuable teaching tool. I wish I’d had this book 40 years ago, but I’m grateful to Brian Derber for writing it now, and I’ll be delighted to see it incorporated into violin making courses in the future!”
—Excerpt from forward by Tschu Ho Lee: Founder and Director Emeritus of The Chicago School of Violin Making
