I received the poster of the 'Gibson-Ex-Huberman-En-Bell' violin in the mail today. I am stunned -- absolutely astounded at the poster. I've never seen anything like it! The clarity of the photography of the belly and back and scroll, the accuracy of the CT scans and of the line drawings, the inclusion of the actual ribs and blocks making it possible to create an exact mold, all of these many measurements – wow! As a luthier, how could I ask for more? It may take me a couple of years, but I'm especially challenged now. I've had my heart set on attempting a copy of this instrument ever since I knew of how Bronislaw Huberman saved nearly a thousand people from the Holocaust. I'm so glad it's been found, restored, and is in the hands of Joshua Bell. And I'm grateful beyond words for this incredible poster. It's absolutely extraordinary! David Lee
