Welcome to the

Pyrography Bibliography

Back to E-Museum Entrance

Pyrography Bibliography is a resource listing antique, old, out-of-print, and current new books on pyrography intended as an aid for those researching pyrography and its history, those students of pyrography looking for either old or new books as work references and study guides, and collectors.

It is hoped that visitors to the e-museum who may have knowledge of some of the rarer books and sources (libraries or stores dealing in old books) will advise the Curator.

OCLC is an international bibliographic database of library holdings. The above 72 books (a few listings were removed by the Curator as they were not pertinent to pyrography) ranging from 1890's to the present were found through that database thanks to Deborah Barlow Smedstad, Head Librarian of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, who kindly forwarded this list and the advice found in these paragraphs to the Curator of the E-Museum of Pyrographic Art.

This brief list, reprinted here in the form of a citation as it came from that database, does not contain the whole bibliographic record, which you can find at any library with access to OCLC by asking a librarian there to do a search on the subject "pyrography".

If you are in or near a major city, try your local major public library, first, to see if some of these titles are part of their collection, or, second, to request them via Interlibrary Loan.

You might also want to try the Craft and Folk Art Museum Library (if you are in Los Angeles) at (213) 857-4682. Wherever you are in the world, if you have a good library available in an art museum or cultural center, you might well be advised to try there.

The E-Museum already has an exhibit with some of these books and plans to exhibit many more of these works in the future, with a picture of the cover and some information about each. An exhibit of catalogues is also planned.
