The Handbook of Model-making for Set Designers describes the entire process of making scale models for stage sets, from the most basic cutting and assembling methods to more advanced skills, including painting, texturing and finishing techniques, and useful hints on presenting the completed model. Many drawings and colour photographs of the writer's own work illustrate the text, and the book is packed with helpful hints gleaned from his experience of designing and model-making, and teaching these skills. Some state-of-the-art computerized techniques are described here for the first time in a book of this kind, including many ways in which digital techniques can be used in combination with the more traditional methods to enhance the model-maker's work. It is a book that will be of use not only to theatre designers, but to anyone with an interest in scale models of any kind. Book jacket.
