In The Making of a Miniature Firearm, George W. Jones has assembled a series of photographs along with captions illustrating his craft as a miniature model artesian, a talent of extraordinary skill, patience and eyesight! His book, terse in words but revealing a wealth of mental stimulation seeing each of the model photographs, creates a real “Wow” factor. It unfolds like a National Geographic special presentation introducing the reader to the complexity of detail necessary to make these museum quality miniature replicas.

George W. Jones was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1945. He won a Gold Medal in Fine Arts and a full-tuition scholarship to the Cleveland Art Institute at the age of 16, and a 5-year contract with American Greetings Cards Company in the National Scholastic Art Competition of 1962 (which he turned down to pursue other interests).

In 1993, George won the National Rifle Association's coveted Silver medal, and in 1995, their Best Arms Award recommendation for his miniature. In 1988, George's work was a part of a 10-city, one-year tour of Japan, as well as the prestigious "Carre De Ore", in Montelimar, France, that same year.

Just wanted to say that your stuff is unbelievable! I worked for several years as a commercial modelmaker in Seattle, but the projects we did were nowhere near the caliber (no pun intended) of your portfolio. Very well done indeed!
