    Default Lynton McKenzie Info--Pics

    Hi Everyone.
    I'm trying to find some good photos of Lynton's work to study. I have his video. I am looking for photos & was wondering if anyone had any to share, or could list the publications/books he might be featured in so that I can do a search for them.
    Thank you!
    Lynn E.

    Good luck. It is rather ellusive but I have found a few surfing the net at gun sites, auctions, etc. I had to reload my hard drive since I found and saved them but if I can find any pics of his work I will surely share them here.

    There is one good picture in STEEL CANVAS by RL Wilson. Not a close up but it can be studied with a magnifying glass.

    Lynn,

    Good luck! I too, have been trying to find good photos of Lynton's work. There are a few in Meek's book if I remember correctly, but I've not been able to find any others. I'm sure there are many of us Newbies who would relish seeing some on this forum. I've heard so much about the man since I began this engraving mania, yet I've not seen much of his work. People speak of "McKenzie scrolls" and I still don't know exactly what they are, or at least, what makes them special. Anyone out there who is more knowledgable, please satisfy our curiosity.

    Lynn, here's a couple GOOD pictures. Not Lynton's best work IMO but still a good example of Mckenzie scroll.

    Default Photo from Google Images

    Ok, I've never done this sort of thing before, so don't know if I'll succeed. I managed to find one gun thru google images search. Actually, the photos are quite wonderful. It's a start at least. I will see if I can load an image and/or a link. Otherwise, go to Google, then the Images link, then I typed in "lynton mckenzie", then it showed a photo labeled RARE Lynton-McKenzie.
    If you click on it, it brings up their site (jamesdjulia.net) with 3 session numbers. I typed in Lynton McKenzie again in their search box, & the auction gun comes up. Click on "VIEW".
    It is well worth the effort to see this gun. Or if you have $26,000 laying around, maybe you can study it first hand! Thanks for the responses so far. Maybe we can all come up with more info.

    Sorry, couldn't figure out how to insert the images. Maybe one of you computer gurus can git 'er done.
    PS--there are others guns on their site worth seeing, too.

    Those are excellent examples of Lynton's pre-microscope engraving. His style changed a bit later on, but these photos are fantastic and really show his famous scrollwork. / ~Sam
