1.   Tawes, William I.
Creative Bird Carving
Publisher: Tidewater Publishers, 1969 Cambridge, MD
ISBN: 0870331418 Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good to Very Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall Foreword by Bruce Burk. "In this book William I. Tawes, a bird-carver of recognized talent and twenty-five years experience in the teaching of woodwork, starts out with simple projects and progresses to more complicated professional types of carving. Beginning with a brief history of wood carving, one of the oldest art forms, he guides the neophyte in the selection, use and care of tools; discusses various woods available and their advantages and disadvantages; he shows how to plan the work from the start of carving to finishing and painting; how to introduce originality into the carver's work, and more. It is the author's desire to crate with this book additional interest in the fascinating and rewarding art of wood carving. He has tried to supply the information that has been requested by beginners who have felt the compelling urge to express themselves in wood. Creative Bird Carving is offered with the feeling that it is simply done, and in a straightforward manner, so the neophyte will have little difficulty in following directions. Clearly and concisely written, and beautifully illustrated with line drawings and photographs, Creative Bird Carving introduces the beginner to an activity that may start as a hobby but can end up as a unique and profitable vocation." William Tawes is a lifelong resident of Crisfield, Maryland, on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Very well illustrated. 207 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD or better condition.
