A photographic journey celebrating wonderful encounters with great violin bridges.

This beautiful, truly unique book, is a must have for all violin makers, restorers, players, dealers and enthusiasts. A culmination of 14 years of research into violin bridges from around the world. The book is a curated selection of high resolution images from the website and database at violinbridges and celebrates the art of cutting bridges and illustrates how the craft and design has evolved over time and is passed down from one luthier to another.

A selection from 1080 bridges spanning 28 countries, with 216 pages of high-resolution images of violin, viola and cello bridges.

Book is available now on my website

At the first shop where I worked, my colleagues and I would huddle around the shop computer and compare the finer points of great bridges on the violinbridges website from time to time. The site is an excellent resource, and it’s nice to see a beautifully produced book that one can sit down with. Certainly a good conversation piece for luthier gatherings!
