This book is dedicated to my father, Paul R. Higgins, in celebration of his 75th birthday and in honor of his incredible craftsmanship as a luthier.
I photographed my father earlier this year building his 14th guitar. The guitar on the cover is the first one he made in 1999. Since then he has built guitars for me, my siblings and cousin. I photographed us with our guitars in the studio. This is just a glimpse of some of the heirlooms my father has created for our family. @2014
