5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, informative, and beautiful pictures 27 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If I never touch a gourd - this book is lovely to read. I do however plan to try my hand at this craft and feel I have the best instructions available. The supply section lists where the gourds, toold, dyes, etc. can be obtained. I have a huge craft book collection - and this is a superior one!

5.0 out of 5 stars excelent pictures,fine information,completely enjoyable 5 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As an avid gardener and reader, I found lots of information about what to do with my gourds (first how to dry them), it had fine pictures of what others have done, and projects that look easy to do while being worth while. The book gives a history of gourds. Where to get diverse seeds, and contacts for others interested in gourds (ie the gourd soiety). I've been tickled to share this book with friends, all have thought it wonderful.

If you want to get enthused about gourd crafting this is the book that will do it.. The book is full of beautiful photographs of the work of many artists. It covers gourd carving, painting, coiling, weaving, and more. In many cases it gives well written instructions for the project. Donna
