Library Journal Review

Decorative woodburning has been practiced since Victorian times and had a period of popularity as a children's craft after World War II. Recent improvements in equipment ensure better results, and this craft is now undergoing a revival. These projects by several artists are for beginners and include step-by-step instructions for decorating purchased wooden items or gourds. A section of design templates is included. This is a good selection for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
