Suggestions for books on raising techniques?

Hello all,

Looks like the last topic was quite a while ago, so this might be a long shot, but I am looking for any suggestions on books that deeply cover raising techniques. I know there’s a bunch of stuff online but I prefer reading paper, especially when it comes to information I want to digest and keep for reference.
If you anyone can suggest anything I would be most appreciative ^____^

Honestly, “new” books don’t come out too often, so even though the post is old the content is still relevant. If you’re looking for a very good, ground up - how to do it book, Alex Bealers the Art of Blacksmithing is great. If you are looking for some basic book with lots of pictures and great content, Lorelei Sims has a great book as well called Backyard Blacksmith.

Those two are great to start, the Art of Blacksmithing is a text heavy book, Backyard Blacksmith has a lot of great visuals.

Welcome to the forums, by the way :slight_smile:
