The Art of Carving Netsuke

A new title on the intricate skill of creating Japanese Netsuke, traditionally created for practical reasons (to secure a valuables pouch to the sash of Japanese garments), yet now highly collectible works of art. Concise, step-by-step instructions are accompanied by numerous colour photographs taking the reader through a wide range of projects. This will inspire carvers of all abilities, from the relative beginner to the experienced and dedicated carver to create their own superb, miniature carvings reflecting Japanese tradition.
