A Course of Instruction in Wood-Carving According to the Japanese Method - Woodworking
by Charles Holme

One of the very few books published on Japanese teaching methods in carving, this is also the earliest, first published in 1899. It uses sets of carved blocks to illustrate the skills that had to be mastered by students to enable them to do a broad range of carving, from border patterns and backgrounds to the classic representations of natural forms that made Japanese art and carving famous in the western world.

The set of 11 lessons (using 65 carved blocks) begins with simple geometric line forms, then progresses through plant forms to classic simple (but beautiful) reliefs. Natural forms predominate throughout the 58 pages and 71 illustrations.

Saddle-stitched softcover, 5" x 8", 58 pages. Reprinted as part of our Classic Reprint Series.
