Carving Architectural Detail in Wood - Reissue

This is probably the first detailed guide to one of the most important of traditional woodcarving skills, now reissued. Wilbur takes the reader, step-by-step, from the basic building blocks of classical design to the practicalities of carving enriched mouldings, volutes, rosettes and capitals. A thorough primer in the vocabulary of classical ornament, this book will be indispensable to cabinetmakers and furniture restorers as well as carvers.
