Extract from back cover of book:
Germany has long been thought of as the mecca of woodcarving. The woodcarving tradition goes back hundreds of years, and the carving schools continue to produce wonderful craftspeople.
For those who can't make the trip to Germany, Georg Keilhofer is the next best thing. Trained in the German techniques he shares with students in his studio, and now in this new book. Here are the basic techniques of relief carving. Step by step he takes the reader through tool selection, understanding wood, and carving techniques are presented in a clear and concise way. The result is a project of which the carver will be proud.
