"Samuel Yellin Metalworker" is a photographic essay and documentation about the master artist-blacksmith Samuel Yellin - representing the culmination of 19th-century wrought iron design and fabrication. This book is the only attempt to record carefully the evolution of this artistic giant. In Philadelphia, from 1909 to 1940, Yellin created iron work for major clients and architects throughout the US. There are the historic photos of Yellin and those who worked in this famous shop - 286 craftsmen in 1928. Better are the many pages of his wrought iron, each piece speaking volumes. There are gates, railings, keys, locks, fireplace sets, lighting devices, and whimsical creatures. The scale of this work is sometimes overwhelming. There is a complete list of Yellin's works recorded on job cards - these cards will help researchers in locating samples of this incredible work. Samuel Yellin's masterpieces remain an important subject to examine, not only for the blacksmiths but also for artists, architects, interior designers, historians, and anyone who works with or enjoys metalwork. "I love iron. It is the stuff of which the frame of the earth is made. And you cam make it say anything you will." Samuel Yellin.
