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.
A brand new book where Tom concentrates on the caricature head by carving busts. About 8" tall, these carvings give plenty of room for detail and allow the carver to explore new ways of giving expression to their work. 64pp
