When Tom Wolfe published his first book on Woodspirits, Tom Wolfe Carves Woodspirits and Walking Sticks, we had no idea how popular it would become.
Thousands of people saw it, bought it, and asked for more.
So here it is, a new collection of Woodspirits, this time done in the traditional Bavarian way.
Carved from a section of a tree, the branch forms the hat.
Of course Tom brings his own inimitable style to the carving, making it lively and creative.
As always he takes the carver step-by-step through the carving process.
There can be no pattern, because each Woodspirit springs from a unique piece of wood.
But the technique and the sequence of carving can be easily learned through the step-by-step color illustrations.
A gallery of several Woodspirits will give the carver many ideas about the variety and variations they can obtain when they release the Spirits from the Wood.
