The Bridgewaters have been writing books on historic and ethnic woodcarving for many years (e.g., The Craft of Wood Carving, LJ 7/81), and their work is characterized by historic accuracy and fidelity to the original model. The masks in this book include a European green man and mummers' fool, as well as African, Indonesian, and Pacific Northwest Native American masks. The projects are well illustrated with grid diagrams, step-by-step instructions, and black-and-white photographs. Color photographs of finished projects are included.
