The 20 fantastic caricatures presented in this book can be carved in relief into pumpkins using woodcarving gouges, pocket knives and kitchen knives. Step-by-step instructions along with detailed color photos guide you through the carving of two faces – one done with kitchen knives, the other with woodworkers' carving tools.
Each of the other designs is illustrated with a full-page pencil drawing and a photo of the finished carving. A brief history explains how the fusion of two unrelated annual festivals created our modern Halloween, and why turnips, rather than pumpkins, were first carved.
