Why did I love this book?
This unassuming book opened up a world of enjoyable handwork, craftsmanship, and satisfying fun for me. I first wanted to learn how to incise letters. Butz writes clearly, his photos show what I needed to see, and I didn’t have to figure out anything much on my own. It was everything a how-to book should be. Thanks, Rick. Then I wanted to take a stab at an acanthus leaf. He covered it just as well. I’ve not yet gotten to the whittling or wildlife sections, but I will one day, and this little book sits on my shelf to help, never to be given away.
