Beautiful photos of a big variety of Netsuke. My husband is a carver and appreciates the effort and the traditions of these Japanese treasures. The small size makes it a challenge.

I love this book! Everything about it is elegant and engaging. After some general sections on the history of netsukes and on tools, materials, and techniques, Robert Judd guides the reader through the carving procedure for six animal figures, all beautiful and charming. The explanations are clear, illustrated with photographs at each step. Less extended descriptions are provided for an additional twenty animals from the author’s collection. In the last chapters we get to admire netsukes from a number of artists and collectors. The exquisite craftmanship and the level of detail match that of a netsuke carving. For example, each chapter is printed on high quality paper of a different color and small white drawings of animal figures adorn the beginning of the various sections.

Having recently retired I decided that I needed an artistic hobby requiring fine motor skills, and a moderate amount of space and equipment. I love animal sculptures. So carving netsukes fits the bill. Robert Judd’s wonderful book made me enthusiastic about my choice of activity. For the last month, I have been happily working toward my goal.

This book offers a lot of ideas, and it does explain how to get them. I wish it was more detailed about some of the other ideas.
Excellent book on how to design and carve Japanese Netsuke. Takes you through the whole process and discusses special techniques for creating eyes, hair, feathers, and other features. Nicely illustrated.
