The Art Of Ocarina Making is a book covering the intricate details of what it takes to make high quality ocarinas. It's written to be easily understood and is heavily illustrated with over 300 photographs and diagrams. It covers:

* Frequently asked questions
* About the ocarina and how it works
* The tools used for ocarina making
* An introduction to working with clay
* Making your first ocarina (Including a section called "I have no sound, HELP!")
* Making bodies (by hand and with a mold)
* The voicing (The technicalities of the wind-way, sound hole and labium)
* Tuning ocarinas (10, 11, 12 and 4 hole)
* Finishing and glazing your ocarinas
* Notes on making concert pitch ocarinas
* Improving the tuning of cross fingered accidentals
* Things to avoid when designing your own ocarinas
* Resolving common ocarina problems
* Fingering charts for all common ocarina styles

It is available as both an ebook (pdf) and print, both have the same high quality formatting though the print version is only available in black and white. The ebook also offers colour, cross reference hyper-linking and searchability, in addition to being cheaper.
