years ago a few of The Guild of Metalsmiths' members collaborated
on writing and publishing a "how to book" on forging animal
heads. The result of their effort is the book, Iron Menagerie,
which explains how to forge fifteen different animal heads.
Blacksmith Paul Hubler (who hammered out all the projects in this
book) is present throughout in pictures and text to explain each
and every step in forging the various animal heads.
Menagerie shows its uniqueness by clearly demonstrating every
step in the animal head process so any person with a minimal amount
of experience can easily follow the instructions. A portion of the
proceeds from the sale of Iron Menagerie go to The Guild of
Metalsmiths Education Fund.
