Do you believe in the saying, “The best person to guide you is the one few steps ahead of you!”? While doing my Engineering, I realized this fact that just before the exam if you require minimal, to the point, useful and applicable information to pass the examination, your friend/colleague who has gone through the subject and appeared for the exam just last week is the best Go to Person. That person may not be the SME (Subject Matter Expert) like the professors teaching for years but is the best bet to solve your immediate problem. So are you a beginner in Pyrography or Wood Burning & looking for a friend and colleague for informal guidance? Your search for that colleague ends here. I sincerely want to take you through that first step and prepare you for your first Pyrography Project! Why Pyrography? Of all the crafts I have practiced, Pyrography is the most value for money. It gives me immense satisfaction and serves the purpose for which I practice the art on the weekends. (i.e., to unwind from my regular job) The best part is this art has got something for everyone. If you are a beginner, get a scrap wood and use your existing soldering pen to start the artwork. Later, you can shift to a proper burner. If you like calligraphy, you can burn letters. A friend of mine is a space enthusiast, and he is making space ships! With experience, you master the art of shading, which gives depth to the artwork. Drawing hair, fur, or skin of an animal takes time, but it is worthwhile to put the effort. What I love about this skill is that it makes one of the best presents for the loved ones. As the art ages with time, it leaves a memorable piece of history to your loved ones. About the Book It is not a traditional book but an effort from your friend to present the experience and discussions while learning this art in the last few years. I have made many wood and leather burning projects over the years and interacted with fellow crafters. This book is the crux of all those learning and experiences over the years. This book provides a minimalistic approach to the information required to start your first Pyrography project. It covers: - Introduction to the art: The history and steps involved - Tools: All about tools involved: Detailed instructions on using Wood Burner including different tips - Designing, Tracing, and Shading: I must say the shading part only comes by practicing! - Coloring, Polishing, and Finishing - Safety Instructions: Very important and highlighted all through the book - Step by Step instructions on 10 starter projects with pictures - Frequently Asked Questions (All the ones I could remember and not covered in other chapters) - Sample Designs: Mandala, Tiger, Dragon, and more. I still remember the initial doubts I had and the tips which helped me. This book is for people who are in their first lap of Pyrography journey and want to have a holistic idea of processes, tools, and need help in their initial projects. I have included photographs of realistic projects of beginners explaining the process and standard operating procedure while starting. So, what are you waiting for?

Martín Ramírez, a Mexican migrant worker and psychiatric patient without formal artistic training, has been hailed by leading New York art critics as one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists. His work has been exhibited alongside masters such as José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Salvador Dalí, Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, and Joan Miró. A landmark exhibition of Ramírez’s work at the American Folk Art Museum in 2007 broke attendance records and garnered praise from major media, including the New York Times, New Yorker, and Village Voice. Martín Ramírez offers the first sustained look at the life and critical reception of this acclaimed artist. Víctor Espinosa challenges the stereotype of outsider art as an indecipherable enigma by delving into Ramírez’s biography and showing how he transformed memories of his life in Mexico, as well as his experiences of displacement and seclusion in the United States, into powerful works of art. Espinosa then traces the reception of Ramírez’s work, from its first anonymous showings in the 1950s to contemporary exhibitions and individual works that have sold for as much as a half-million dollars. This eloquently told story reveals how Ramírez’s three-decades-long incarceration in California psychiatric institutions and his classification as “chronic paranoid schizophrenic” stigmatized yet also protected what his hands produced. Stripping off the labels “psychotic artist” and “outsider master,” Martín Ramírez demonstrates that his drawings are not passive manifestations of mental illness. Although he drew while confined as a psychiatric patient, the formal elements and content of Ramírez’s artwork are shaped by his experiences of cultural and physical displacement.

The family holiday is something to look forward to, but what if you are already twelve years old and going on holiday with your immediate family for the first time? And what if one important member of the family is not there – except in everyone’s memories and emotions? Victoria Darwen finds herself in just such a situation and, although her father and older brother do their best to help, they have their own lives and experiences to manage as well. Everything a person could wish for on holiday is at her family’s disposal: a nice, old house in a British seaside resort, a yappy dog next door and a kind-hearted neighbour just down the hill, but “family” and emotions complicate things. And not just that. The house – or, at least, the land around it – has some interesting history that soon begins to intrude into Victoria’s everyday life. Is she experiencing something “supernatural” or are her heightened emotions making her see things in a particular way? Whatever the truth may be, she finds herself having to cope with it by herself – at least until a little help comes from a slightly unexpected source. APPLE is simply about an ordinary girl, centred on everyday events and emotions, but pressure is generated by something that may be supernatural or may just be the projection of the stresses and strains caused as we interact with each other and the world we live in. Young readers aged 12+ will relate to the central character and be intrigued as they try to work out what’s real and what is imagined in this atmospheric read.
