5.0 out of 5 stars answer to all your pinstriping questions! 20 Feb 2007
By Michelle M. Maynard - Published on Amazon.com
My name is Miz Raven (formaly Von Raven), I am a self tought pinstriper who had the privilage to meet Mr.Martinez at the Pinstripers Reunion at the GNRS. Out of all the books I've read on pinstriping, this by far the most thorough, informative and easy to follow book I've ever read. I couldn't even put it down once I started to read it! It covers everything from history, to every brush and paint imanginable and its use, how to properly stripe a strait line down the side of a car (I'm no longer lopsided!!), goldleafing, and more!!!

I am forever grateful of the vast amount of info Mr. Martinez has filled this book with!!! It's definitely a keeper!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book! 28 April 2007
By Robert Cramsie - Published on Amazon.com
I have always been in awe of pinstripers. How they can lay down a line in such perfect proportion has always been a mystery to me. They are true artists. Herb Martinez has taken the art and mystery behind pinstriping and brought it down to the level where all can understand how it is done. This man not only paints a straightline, he can write a straight one, too. I've known Herb for going on 30 years and he is a character. His personality matches his designs and he is a sheer joy to talk to. Beautifully illustrated with clear and concise text, this book should be in every current and future pinstripers tool box. Well done, Herb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive but not overwhelming. 21 Feb 2010
By Tyson L. Rice - Published on Amazon.com
This book covers everything from choosing supplies to intricate designs in a detailed and progressive manner. Every time I look in it I find a little tidbit to tweak my technique for the better.
I never thought I could stripe a straight line. I still have a lot more to learn, but I wouldn't have even known where to start without this book.
