Northern Illinois University Press announces the publication of Decoys and Decoy Carvers of Illinois. Both sportsmen in the field and collectors by the hearth will prize a copy of the biggest and most beautiful book ever published about decoys. This is a definitive work on Illinois decoys, but its interest extends far beyond the Midwest. Years of collecting-and photographing collections-went into this book. Short biographies on 208 known carvers-drawn from hundreds of interviews with either the carvers or their descendants and friends-place both men and decoys in historical perspective.
