Carving Classical Styles in Wood

This book explains the principles of classical ornamentation and how the motifs evolved through the Greek, Roman, Romanesque, Renaissance and Neoclassical periods. Carving techniques are described and illustrated with separate chapters covering relief panels, bands and foliage; tablets, escutcheons, scrolls and cartouches; fans, sunbursts and shells; keystones and finials.
