Since the fine antique bits and spurs of a century ago are scarce and difficult to find as well as very expensive, there is a growing interest in pieces made by contemporary makers. This beautiful book introduces the reader to 123 skilled modern makers of bits and spurs. They come from all parts of the United States as well as Canada and Europe and are creating new designs appropriate for the 21st century. Also included are descriptions and images of myriad motifs and techniques used in building and embellishing these pieces over many centuries.
