About this title

Synopsis:

In Shorebird Carving, Rosalyn Daisey shares her artistic insight and skill in a way that is at once instructive and beautiful. As with her previous works, Songbird Carving and Songbird Carving II, the reader will find step-by-step carving methods for creating these beautiful sculptures. Beginning with accurately detailed plans and drawings, the techniques of carving, texturing, painting, and mounting are explained with exquisite photographs and illustrations. The four projects featured are the Greater Yellowlegs, the Semi-Palmated Plover, the Dunlin, and the Sanderling in flight. The basics of carving are covered in a way that is clear and succinct, making this book invaluable to the beginner as well as the advanced carver. With the careful, clear organization of text and photos Shorebird Carving provides an unsurpassed guide to this type of carving.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
