engravings by Winston Churchill
 
Hello,

i am an engraver from Germany and since i have seen the engravings by Winston Churchill i am a huge admirer of his works. I already bought the Colt .45 Eaton book aswell as American Engravers from the 21th Century. But thats not enough for me. Unfortunally, the contact through his page always gives me an 404 Error and i dont know how to contact him. Can anybody give me an advice how i can get in contact with him?

I found out that he should have engraved a Parker Gun aswell. Are there any images existing from that gun? It should be with english scrolls.

I am searching any pictures i can get from his works in hope to improve my own engravings. I would appreciate it if someone can give me some high resolution images from his works so that i can study them. I dont want them for free, of course.

An engraver from the Engravers Cafe Forum told me that there are some magazin articles about his work exist aswell. Unfortunally i did not remember the magazines. Can someone give me some information about articles in sporting/hunting magazines with his works? The only magazin i know is the Shooting Sportsman, which i already have now.

Greetings and thank you for reading,

Daniel

Send Allan Swanson a PM. He's friends with Winston Churchill.

Exactly what I would have advised Chuck.

The Engravers Guild website is your best source of Winston's work. Remember, "Google is your friend"

Thank you for your answers!

And thank you to the friend who informed Allan!

The Guild page is the FEGA page? Unfortunally i havent found images from Winstons work there. Or is there another guild page?

I was paging thru an old Shooting Sportsman yesterday evening and saw the 28 ga VHE that Winston engraved and upgraded. It was the July August 1999 issue. You may be able to purchase an old copy from them.

Thats the one with the cover showing two shotguns laying on a grey table?

Mr. Churchill is also an amazing sculptor!
