The new book with 99+1 historical German bows (by 100 different makers, ALL stamped! but only one stamp per maker), originally planned to be presented at the Frankfurt Cuvée Darling Exhibition 2020, where the 100 bows were to be exhibited, but now we know why it is important to make books as the Exhibition cannot take place because of the Corona shut-down. But books cannot be shut down…

Edited by Mathias Wohlleber from Berlin.

The finished book in 10 days, but here a sneak peak at the control prints:

As the books are on a Macbook Pro of 17 inch, they are larger than one thinks. Some think they are on a 13 inch laptop!
The substantial and heavy 216 pages book of the 3rd and final Sinfonima Cuvée Darling 2019 Exhibition. Only 250 Softcover and 100 Hardcover were produced, which will make it a rare collector´s item soon. 45 bow makers and 19 violin makers (not to forget 1 guitar maker!) with hundreds of bows, instruments and pictures of the makers. Additional documentation of the 2017 and 2018 Frankfurt Expositions. As most copies are now in hands of the exhibitors, there are just few copies left over.
