Wooden Folk

Bilingual text by Alain Duhamel, illustrated by Benoi Deschênes
Éditions Port-Joly, Legal Deposit BNQ and BNC, 1975.

Sculpture in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli is much more than the production of statuettes,
much more than an exceptionally high concentration of wood carvers.
We have sea folk and country folk, kinfolk, men folk or women folk.
Why not then wooden folk?
Anyone entering the village can hardly escape the feeling that nowhere in this place
is there a man or woman who is not aware of a yearning to repeat a little bit of creation.

4,95$ + taxes and shipping.
