Welcome Yusuf

I do believe you are the first from Turkey on either hand engraving forum. It is great to have input from so many different nationalities. You should find everything you need here but only you can supply the desire and determination to succeed in this most difficult art.

Good luck,

Roger

Hi Yusuf,
Two books that are a must for your library are:
The Art of Engraving by James B. Meeks and
Drawing and Understanding Scroll Designs by Ron Smith

If you read these two books before you start to engrave many questions will be answered for you.
If you have money there are always tools you can buy so get some theory from the books before you start spending your money!
