Summary

Fold forming is a creative and dynamic way to manipulate metal.  This practical guide explains the process, starting with simple line folds and showing how a few techniques can reveal the rich potential of the method.  Written for jewellers and metalsmiths, it goes on to explore the many beautiful ways in which fold forming can be used to distort and shape metal to incredible effect.  Having introduced the concept of fold forming by exploring different methods and types of single folds, the book covers how to create multiple folds in sheet metal using hammers and then the rolling mill to forge folds, and explains how microfolding is particularly suited to jewellery and smallwork, and can be used to strengthen thin material. This book encourages interpretation, experimentation and development of the techniques to produce original pieces, and is beautifully illustrated with 167 colour photographs.

    An unconventional and engaging take on Caribbean history
     
    After a life-changing diagnosis, Dutch entrepreneur Jacob Gelt Dekker decides to take a step into the unknown. Setting sail from his home in Key West, he embarks on an odyssey around the Caribbean islands, navigating treacherous waters and nations forever shaped by the Age of Discovery and transatlantic slave trade. Soon he discovers that he is not alone on his boat. With him during the long days and nights at sea are Anansi the Spider, the West African trickster, and The Flying Dutchman, doomed to sail the oceans forever and harboring a terrible secret.
     
    Together, this unlikely trio seeks to establish the truth about the history of the Caribbean. Along the way, they encounter famous pirates and unpick tales of untold riches, but also retrace the steps of the region’s slaves, finding out how events in Europe, the fledgling American colonies, and Africa sealed their fates. Informed by personal experience and the people he meets on the islands, Jacob Gelt Dekker offers an unconventional account that is key to understanding the Caribbean and its peoples today.
     
    The Caribbean reads like a novel, providing us with a rollicking narrative and a rich brew of colorful facts.
