Selecting the correct frame for a particular piece of art is a matter of great importance. The right frame can enhance and support the values of any artwork, while the wrong frame can draw attention away from it. This book shows you how to make this important decision. Today, there are more choices and styles of frames available than ever before - and far fewer set-in-stone rules of right and wrong. Framers today no longer focus merely on the Old Masters, instead they see a multiplicity of artwork enter their shops. From the standard terrain of limited-edition prints and original oils, they have ventured into the new territory of framing precious memorabilia: wedding invitations or babies' booties that commemorate a special occasion; wine labels or baseball cards that show off a collector's interest. Custom shadow-box framing has opened an even wider vista: sports memorabilia, antiques and Christmas ornaments - anything and everything can be set off to its best advantage in a well-chosen and well-made frame. Illustrated with more than 40 full-colour photographs, this book takes you step-by-step through the process of choosing a frame, describing its components, then explaining the best ways to frame any artwork, listing the all-important "Ten Commandments for the Proper Framing of Pictures". This is a book for art lovers, professional framers, artists, gallery owners, decorators, collectors of all kinds and anyone who wants to find the right frame for any work of more
