    Thanks, I currently own the 2019 edition of the Jack Price book. I assume the video would be a nice supplement. I'll have to keep an eye out if anything happens to pop up someday.

    I bought mine several years ago...I just did a search and couldn't find one. The books are still in print, and you can actually get one from Fox Chapel Publishing.

    I bought mine several years ago. Might check Ebay? The cd/DVD was actually burned from a VHS tape, I think.

    One book I used when first starting was Carving basswood eggs by Mary
    finn. Mainly because she had you carve 4 different study sticks, one for eyes, one for the nose and two for the mouth, one closed and one open.

    Doug is correct! I, however, use my smartphone instead of a mirror - I can take a selfie of my face or profile when trying a specific facial expression. Then I go ask my wife if the photos look realistic!

    Yep, most of the carvers in our club have a mirror in their tool bag.

    Arguably 'off topic' but there was a great incidental comment re face carving in a recent Doug Linker live feed. His partner asked why he has a mirror at his carving desk, he replied "So I can study what a particular facial feature looks like." Food for thought?

    There are a number of YouTube’s on face carving. These are two good how to books, clear directions and good picture.

    Thank you all for your help. I'm going to give Pete Leclair's book, Carving Caricature Faces a shot.

    Look for books on drawing by the artist Jack Hamm

    Here is the strategy that I have used for years:
    Visit big art supply dealers on line for books:
    Dick Blick
    Opus Framing

    Make notes of the titles that look interesting.
    Next,
    go to abeBooks.com and see what they have in 6,000,000 titles, second hand.
    You might get the books for pennies on the dollar. It's an amazing website.

    I'll guess that I have bought at least $1,000.00 new price books over the years for a total less than $150.00.
