'Wood Carving is one of the oldest crafts, and this book deals with all aspects of the subject in a modern way, so that the beginner can learn the elementary steps and follow his own interests as his skill develops. The keen craftsman who is already a woodworker will find that carving gives him an opportunity of putting an individual finish on the things he makes, while any man or woman looking for a means of developing their artistic expression in a traditionally sound way will find that wood carving has much to offer them.'
