Rudall, Rose & Carte: The Art of the Flute in Britain
- Editor's Choice
This a simply stunning book. Firstly, it's totally readable - the kind of book you open at random and are still reading half an hour later. The amount of scholarship and research Robert Bigio has undertaken is astonishing and his love of the subject shines through each of the 300+ pages. Everything is covered in great detail, from the history of the family, the deveopment of the business to the design and making of the instruments. The amount of illustration is also very impressive. There are 157 pictures, diagrams and photos old and new to illuminate the text, but the chapter tilted Gallery has the most wonderful series of pictures of all types of Rudall, Rose and Carte flutes - 100 pages of them. Yes, this is an expensive book but it's oh-so worth it.
