Bo Nordh. Every pipeman knows the name, has seen the late master’s pipes, and maybe has one or two in his collection from which he smokes; perchance so exquisite is the piece that he is hesitant to draw a match to it and smoke the tobacco within. No matter, this book does what a single pipe of Bo’s could never do: It presents nearly every shape he ever designed and executed in briar. This charming story, told by friend and founder of the Pipe Club of Sweden, Jan Andersson, is sure to please those with a penchant for straight grain and innovative design. An all-color, 130-page extravaganza of exquisiteness, stunning shapes and wood grain, and vignettes of Nordh’s friends and collectors of his work.
