This book has two projects described very clearly in a step by step way (the cover design and a walking stick carving)
I found the quality of the projects very high and the descriptions very clear.

Next is a section with photographs of green man carvings from various churches etc

Finally a large selection of green man line drawings to use as project templates (or to adapt to your own design)

There's just enough text to explain the background and variety of green men - but then the images are allowed to speak for themselves

Well illustrated but very sparse on specific use of tools and carving techniques.The instruction for carving the f/cover illustrated design includes a long list of tools needed, but no specific guidance to use which tool where. A bit disappointing really if you expect advice on the execution of the art, but note the title; 'Design Sourcebook for Woodcarvers...'
not 'How to Carve...' Good section on examples of the art in architecture of antiquity, quite inspiring. If you can already carve to an intermediate level, you will like this book.

A very informative book! Gives lots of ideas and styles. Just the job for beginners and experienced carvers who may be stuck for ideas.

Not quite what I expected and some of the patterns are very similar. This is not one of the best by this author.
