If you are tired of carving the same old smiling face in your Halloween pumpkin, do we have the book for you! This week we received the book Extreme Pumpkin Carving by Vic Hood and Jack A. Williams. This revised and expanded second edition contains detailed instructions and beautiful, full color photographs of incredible designs that are sure to make your pumpkin the envy of the neighborhood. This book will guide you in selecting the proper pumpkin, using the appropriate tools, which carving techniques work best, and even finishing touches to extend the life of your work of art. Whether you want your Jack o’ lantern to be scary, funny, or beautifully ornate, this book will show you how it is done.
