Vintage Bows- I, II and now III
Vintage Bows I was written as an introduction to our hobby. 100 pages, ten chapters discussing the history of the bow and arrow, defining archery terms, mentioning the brands and history of the post-WWII era when the byproducts of the war (fiberglass and epoxy glues) allowed bow designers to create the modern recurve bow. Vintage Bows-II expands the information for the more advanced traditional archer with 18 chapters, 187 pages and over 200 photos with added details on the brands, models and production years; including added chapters on bow-string technology, tuning the arrow to match you and your bow and much more. The books are print-on-demand, typically drop shipped right from the printer to you. Paypal is the preferred method with the printers packing and mail charge included on the order page (button below). Clicking on the images below provides some content samples. Thanks for looking. Vintage Bows III just released (3/2014), continues where Vintage II left off. It contains new info on Browning recurves (models, years produced), Ben Pearson models and years, Shakespeare models and years, the bows of Ernie Root and more.
