Just wanted to say I am finding your book brilliant and look forward every Sunday afternoon after my work chores to sitting down with a nice pot of tea and reading for an hour or two. You are to be commended for a first class product full of fascinating info and detail. Your hard work researching has certainly come through. Well written, enjoyable and very educational.

The best book I have seen about the subject – Love at first sight ! A gold mine for those who try to persuade themselves that they can carve – like me !

This beautifully produced book, well written by the professional carver Andrew Peters is a treatise on the ship carvers work during the hey day of decoration when no expense was spared.The evolution of styles among the major seafaring navies and merchant ships are compared and contrasted. The photographs and illustrations are wonderfully rendered. This book will please ship modellers, research historians or history buffs in general
