For many years, Firmo Fracassi has worked directly with his private clients, most of whom give him carte blanche on how he designs and executes the engraving once the subject matter has been selected. A true Master Engraver, Fracassi never repeats or copies an existing engraving, including his own. With his daughter, Francesca, Fracassi’s engravings will continue to inspire future generations of artists and art collectors. ISBN 10: 1-886768-83-8

Release date: November, 2008

Selected Annotation:
“Firmo Fracassi is a genuine legend in his own time – the Grand Master of bulino engraving. It has been my privilege to own a number of Fracassi engraved shotguns, and I am waiting for several more! The photographs in this unique publication will give the reader an instant impression of the art of bulino engraving. The illustrations selected are without a doubt the finest examples of bulino engraving created by the master’s hands. Every time I handle one of my Fracassi creations, I see something new in the design and execution. This newest edition in the Italian Master Engraving series is the next best thing to having a Fracassi masterpiece of your own.” - Robert M. Lee, collector, philanthropist, and publisher of The Art of the Gun series
