Book Description

25 Aug 1986
This is a practical guide to the picture-framing process, in which every step of the process is explained, from choosing the mouldings, cutting the wood and the glass, making the mount, assembling and finishing the frame, and hanging the picture. The techniques described assume little or no experience on the part of the reader, and unrealistic standards of workmanship are not expected. The author has included a list of remedies for basic mistakes, as well as a checklist for preventive measures. Construction methods for many different styles of picture-frame are accompanied by clear illustrations. There are tips on choosing a frame design to complement the reader's home decor, and a section on restoring old frames. Advice is also given on how picture-framing skills may be turned into a paying hobby.

Excellent little book that has gone through lots of reprints and editions. This is a early edition, but is cram full of useful information. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Framing really is easy 2 Sep 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I am a water color painter and I have framed my own work, but it usually looked more lynched than hung. So, when I saw Penelope Stoke's book, PICTURE FRAMING MADE EASY, I muttered, "yeah, right." Well, I read the book and realize the key to framing is having the proper equipment and a place to use said equipment. PICTURE FRAMING MADE EASY shows in detail each tool and tack and tells how to use the equipment effectively. I must admit, her book helps make framing easier, and the finished project really can look professional when done at home. Using her step-by-step instructions you can frame your own art, heirlooms, butterly collection, whatever you choose to frame! I highly recommend it

2.0 out of 5 stars Picture Framing Made Difficult 9 Jun 2003
By Catherine S. Cline - Published on Amazon.com
This is not a book for the person who wants to save a little money. It is written for the fanatic who wants to know how to do everything.
To be fair I did pick up some useful information on restoring old prints and frames. But it all seems a lot more complicated than I want to do. The terminology is British and I have a feeling that some of the materials are not known by the same nomenclature in the USA.
Maybe i'm just looking for a simpler book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacking in details 5 Mar 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book is often lacking in details and does not fully illustrate all concepts. For example, it mentions the paper hinge method for mounting a picture to the mount board. However, it does not provide enough detail for an amateur like myself to implement this technique. The techniques all use very cude handtools, and the author does not even mention the tools a professional might use. I'm sure it is possible to use the information in the book to make quality looking frames, but using these tools, it sure will take a struggle of an effort
