Extract from back cover of book:

Featuring over 200 hand-carved art spoons, A Gathering of Spoons is the definitive photographic record of the world's most brilliant and beautiful examples of art spoon design.

Spoons may be ordinary utilitarian objects, but A Gathering of Spoons triumphantly demonstrates that any object, no matter how unassuming, can be transformed into a glorious work of art. The spoon represents a turning point in the early history of humanity.

The spoon is one of the simplest and earliest of tools, but it is intimately connected to the origins of cuisine, family life, and the beginnings of human culture.

A Gathering of Spoons celebrates the modern renaissance of modern spoon making by showcasing the greatest art spoons from the collection of Norman D. Stevens, one of the forces behind the spoon carving revival.

Presenting a dazzling variety of forms, materials, and carving techniques, A Gathering of Spoons presents the finest work in spoon making from around the world. Each piece is beautifully photographed to present its unique visual appeal, making A Gathering of Spoons a fascinating record of great art in unique form.
