Promoting the Art of Caricature Carving . . . In October 1990, a small group of woodcarvers from around the country met in a back room in Fort Worth, Texas, to discuss caricature carving. From that meeting, the Caricature Carvers of America was created: an organization of nationally recognized carvers, all with diverse caricature carving styles, dedicated to the promotion of their favorite craft.Seventeen years later, this selective 25-seat organization continues to elevate and promote the art of caricature carving. Although they've never made claims of being "the best," the members of the Caricature Carvers of America have garnered hundreds of "Best of Show" and First Place awards, have taught countless seminars, and have published over 100 popular books on the subject of caricature carving. In one amazing volume, Caricature Carvers Showcase introduces you to this exclusive society and 30 of its active and emeritus members. With biographies, original caricature patterns, expert carving and design techniques, and helpful painting tips, Caricature Carvers Showcase spotlights some of America's fi nest caricature carvers and celebrates their talents. If you're a caricature carver, or someone who simply enjoys the craft of carving, Caricature Carvers Showcase is a must-have for your bookshelf.
