The Art of the Stonemason (Paperback)



Drawing on five generations of family tradition as stonemasons in his Native Scotland, Ian Cramb created this masterful work to pass on his knowledge and experience to craftsmen who wish to learn the ancient, but still necessary, principles of the stonemason's art.

Ian Cramb began his apprenticeship at age fourteen in Scotland, became Master Stonemason in the 1950s and restored the monastic buildings at Iona Abbey. He moved to the U.S. in the late '50s and set stone on the U.S. Capitol. He lived in Bangor, Pennsylvania. Cramb died in 2013.
