This is an impressing book. While other books about black forest woocarving tend to be more of a catalogue, this book goes beyond into an extensive analysis of the black forest phenomena, including biographies of famous carvers and a deep analysis of the factors behind the development of that movement since its beginnings until its fall. Features hundreds of pictures, this book is a must have to both antique dealers, art collectors, and also -although to a lesser degree - to carving enthusiasts looking for inspiration.
This is a great book. The Schiffer group is known to produce high quality publications. I also like the book they just released on Black Forest Clocks.
This is a very complete book on the history and types of Black Forest Carvings. It is a must for any Black Forest Collector or lover.
I liked it a lot. Wish it had more on nutcrackers, but it did a much better job on that subject than the last Black Forest book.
