Books by Nigel Forster

Ever thought of making a living at lutherie?
Are you already a luthier and having trouble making a decent living?
Need to know how to market yourself better?

There is a lot of information available about how to build an instrument but not much available about how to make a living doing it. Friend and fellow luthier, Nigel Forster, has written some ebooks on the subject Nigel addresses topics and gives advice that every craftsman can benefit from. I wish this information had been available when I took the plunge from amateur to full time luthier.

With Nigel's ebooks, I am sure you will learn a lot about turning your passion into a profession and how to be successful in doing so.

Here are some of the things you will learn from Nigel's books:

Making a living in lutherie: from amateur to professional
