Product description

Taking the form of a progressive course, this is a comprehensive guide to the craft of lettercarving in wood. It begins with essential background information such as the tools needed, suitable woods to use and how to make working drawings. Progression through a step-by-step course teaches the reader how to carve a complete incised alphabet in modern Roman letter style. More advanced aspects of the subject, such as spacing, colour, family resemblance, and optical adjustment are also explained, and supported by a glossary of technical terms and 300 colour photographs.
