This is a very explicit book on the basic steps to whittle and carve with just one knife and twigs. Mr Lubkemann's stlye is beautiful, easy and simple. For all those who want to start carving this is a very helpful book.

A great book to for people starting to carve. The techniques use only one knife and twigs and branches. Fun projects that are easy to complete and can be completed almost anywhere.
