The Pipe (A Functioning Work Of Art) By Ehrhorn Hummerston

£80.00 inc. VAT

Pipe smokers enjoy having the privilege of having a personal tool: their pipe. For some, it is an extension of themselves and they go through great efforts to find the perfect pipe in terms of smoking experience and aesthetics. To other more prosaic-minded people, it is merely a tool for tobacco consumption.

This book investigates the properties of pipes in general and the most prised of them all: the briar pipe. What differentiates a good pipe from a mediocre pipe?  Furthermore, this book portrays some of the Danish pipe masters who produce the Stradivariuses of pipes. Their craftsmanship and love for pipes jumps off the pages and the images will entice even non-smokers to acquire a pipe of their own. Pipe masters are truly producing functional works of art.
