Summit and Widess (coauthors, The Complete Book of Gourd Crafting) continue their creative treatment of gourds with this book of projects for human and animal figures loosely adapted from traditional dolls and fetishes in other media. Naturally formed gourds are used for a set of Russian-style matryoshka(nesting dolls), while other gourds are shaped during growth to form grotesque faces and corkscrews. Photos of finished objects by many artists are used as chapter illustrations. This book does not duplicate material in the authors' previous books; recommended for public libraries.
