Close attention is paid to Louisianas most famed carvers--masters such as Warren Seebt, Mark McCool Whipple, Mitchel LaFrance, Nicole Vidacovich, Marc Alcide Comardelle, and the prolific Vizier family of the Bayou Lafourche area. Unique in style, color, and form, Louisiana duck decoys are highly prized by serious collectors. Through some 318 color photographs, the author depicts the step-by-step development of this unusual art. Chapters offer valuable advice on carving techniques as well as suggestions for the collector. Louisianas most noted patterns are discussed in detail, as are the collections that Frank feels are the most outstanding in the state.
