Looking at various types of rock (from sandstone to marble) and their suitability for specific projects, examining the tools needed, their purpose and uses, and creating a safe and suitable environment to work in. The projects are well illustrated and each one introduces specific skills, such as using tools correctly, texturing the surface, drawing the outline of the sculpture, gauging the depth of the relief to be carved, carving letters, or how to cut away large volumes of stone.    View Details

Arts and Crafts of Napoleonic and American POW's: 1756 -1816 by Clive Lloyd
0 Star

Whilst many books have been published about war, the role of the prisoner of war has been largely ignored or paid scant attention. This book aims to correct this imbalance, and is the result of the author's quest over thirty years into this almost-forgotten field of history. Tells of the various wars that saw the men, from many different countries, become prisoners. Tales of individuals and their voyages, mutinies, fortunes and failures also feature, adding more personal touches to the history and conditions on board that the prisoners would have had to endure.    View Details
