Scott and Cathy have written a second book on  powder horns. “Building the Southern Banded Horn”,  is a welcome addition to all of us interested in learning more about powder horns.

It does not matter whether you are a builder, contemporary collector or antique southern horn collector there is something for everyone.  The builders out there will find comprehensive coverage on building a southern banded horn.

All the steps are beautifully photographed and Scott’s instructions are dead on.  I don’t ever plan to attempt to build one of these horns, but I enjoyed seeing the process involved. With all the information included I’m sure the novice as well as the advanced builder will find something useful.

 

For the contemporary collector there are a number of striking photographs of Scott and Cathy’s work.  The photographs are composed using a great many wonderful contemporary bags, guns, measures, knives, and axes along with an equal number of antique objects.

There is also a section that features antique southern banded horns from private collections.  Many of these horns have never been photographed.  Several very nice antique accouterments are included in the section.

The Sibley’s book deserves a place in the libraries of all those who have a fondness for the southern banded horn.  Builders and collectors alike will certainly enjoy this volume.

The book  will have 128 pages.  It is full color and has about 57 color pictures (full page)  of horns.  Two-thirds of the horns are originals.

The book will be available soon through PowderHorns and More.

 

It should not take very long for the first printing to be finished.  Scott’s previous book went through 3 printings!
