Spotlighting the work and members of the exclusive carving club, The Caricature Carvers of America (CCA), this photo-illustrated history is a must-have for wood carvers and collectors alike. Perusing the guide's biographies and photos of America's top caricature carvers, readers will become acquainted with 25 members, both active and emeritus, such as Marv Kaisersatt, Harold Enlow, Peter Ortel, and Pete LeClair. Each profile includes two original patterns viewed from different angles, complete with techniques and painting and finishing tips.
Eldon became a member of the CCA in 1996 and has never looked back! This book has over 390 step-by-step photographs in full color and excellent close-up quality. His section on carving faces, including a fantastic section on carving eyes, is phenomenal. The book is full of 'Tips and Quips' and while being simple enough for beginners, will offer the experienced some new ideas and techniques. A Wonderful Book! 76pp
