This book is great and provides numerous examples for carving pumpkins. I highly recommend it and suggest you consider carving up a face. To help one get started it has an example of carving a pumpkin face and it beaks it down into 87 steps & pictures of to do it. The rest of the book is full of faces you could carve. Enjoy
While it's nice to have a book you can flip through to see the close up photos of these carvings, it doesn't provide the tools to really learn that a video offers. I didn't find the book that helpful for this reason. I would recommend videos for pumpkin carving over books any day.
Lots of great ideas. Mostly way too complicated for me as a beginning carver, but lots of great detail went into explaining the basic ideas.
