Description


Tom Wolfe brings together two of his great loves in this new book: the love of wood carving and the love of a good cigar. While there is much ado about cigars today, Tom has been an aficionado for many years. Now he brings his carving skill to that all important piece of equipment for the serious cigar smoker, the humidor. From a caricature Texas Troubadour Humidor to a simply elegant decoy humidor, Tom opens a new range of carving for both novice and experienced carvers. The results are useful objects that catch the eye and the imagination. They will look good on the mantel, and even better on the carver's table at the local carving show. An amply illustrated gallery and many patterns make this book a vital addition to your carving book collection.

About the Author


Tom Wolfe is one of the leading caricature woodcarvers in America. He carves and teaches at his studio in Spruce Pine, North Carolina.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
