I bought two picture framing books and must say that this is by far the better of the two. Its an American written book so some of the products you can't actually buy here but mostly you can. Easy guide with excellent pictures. I have no hesitation in recommending this book.

Complete Photo Guide to Framing and Displaying ArtworkA very informative book with superb photographs to illustrate the text. The book deals with every aspect of picture framing including information on colour and design as well as framing fabric pictures and other 3D pictures.
When choosing a book it is very useful to be able to see inside the book to see if it is the kind of book that would be useful for the purchaser. This certainly helped me choose this book.

This book contains lots of useful suggestions and is very well laid out and nicely presented

However I would caution that as the third book I have on the subject, each seems to suggest different methods and focus on a different type of framing

This is very much about fancy home projects. The displaying artwork section makes it worth buying

I bought this for my partner, for a Christmas present, as he is an amateur artist, and has a large portfolio of art which he keep meaning to get framed, he also has done his own framing in the past, so thought this might help with ideas, also I am an amateru photographer, and want to get some of my own photos framed too, but wanted to learn to do it myself. Brilliant, and very helpful book, with good photos and how to do things.

An excellent "how-to" book on this popular subject. It was recommended to me by a professional picture framer and did not disappoint. A few of the terms used are uniquely American but this isn't really a problem once you get started with the right equipment.
