Format: Paperback
Stage's book is cheesy. It is 46 pages long, written in a jerky, disconnected, unfocussed style. She spends ten and a half pages on anatomy, offering helpful pointers such as "The forehead is the part of the face above the eyes [...] Carve the forehead to suit the subject being sculptured." Stage goes over various types of stone (alabaster, soapstone, turquoise, etc.) and briefly discusses technique and tools. But the information (excluding digressions) is really minimal and there are no addresses of suppliers. _Rock sculpture: the joy of stone carving for beginners_ is very inexpensive, but I would recommend looking for a book less cheap and more useful.

Ok, to be fair, this little book is a good one for the utter novice who is looking to get started in the art of stone carving. I found it very helpful and her tips were sound and good. It sparked my creative side and also helped me with some early difficulties. I will keep mine as a reference book! Worth the price!

this book does not tell what equipment to use, where to find stone, hwo to carve different types of stone, nor how to carve stone at all. it is a waste of good paper and will not help anyone who wants to actually carve stone
