Holz Bemalen, Kerb Schnitzen, by Christian Rubi. 135 pages, profusely illustrated by drawings and photgraphs, with several color plates. Bern: Verlag Hans Huber, 1951. Price, $3.25.

The Bernese Heimatschutz, which encourages the perpetuation of old techniques, is largely responsible for the production of this book. Christian Rubi, well-known head of Bern’s school of woodwork, gives a lucid introduction to simple wood carving and painting, in which many ancient patterns are preserved. Full directions are provided as to tools and materials.
