A comprehensive survey tracing the development and art of violin and bow making in America

As a result of “The American Violin: From Jefferson to Jazz,” an exhibit presented in 2006 by the American Federation of Violin and Bow Makers and the Library of Congress, a large number of American instruments and bows have been photographed and documented. This important material is now published in a new book The American Violin.

Christopher Germain talks about The American Violin, then and now on Violinist.com

This really is a thoroughly well-thought-out, beautifully produced and authoritative volume, and a pleasure from cover to cover. John Dilworth, The Strad, August 2016

5 star review…super production values, photos, layout, paper and printing.  Text is excellent… Christopher Reuning via Facebook

The American Violin project was made possible with the generous support of the American Federation of Violin and Bow Makers, the Library of Congress, and the Violin Society of America.
