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

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.
