There is a great history on dolls in different cultures in the beginning of the book that I found fascinating. Different techniques for creating figures are shown in many styles as well as mediums. Probably the very best thing about this book is the abundance of pictures throughout. It will give you great inspiration to come up with your own creations!
I too prepaid- Well worth the wait.
A must for any gourd artist.
I am especially fond of the whimsical and archetypal characters
Thank you for your contributions to the art world!

Gourds are easy to grow. In fact if you don't keep an eye on them they will take over more than the space you arranged for them in your yard and there are many volunteer gourds just waiting in every seed that is inside each and every gourd. If you like a certain gourd from your crop, dry those seeds and plant them the following year and you will have a whole vine of those gourds with that years crop and the seeds seem to last forever. My husband was cleaning the seeds out of one last year and he must have dropped a few on the ground because this year we had volunteer gourd vines all over by the trash can out back. They are definitely prolific.
