The author has been making traditional Cracow-style Christmas cribs for 30 years.  He says that in the early years many people asked him about the details of crib making and composition of the parts.  This book answers these questions in a simple and well-illustrated way, using both black-and-white sketches and color photographs.  This is the only book of its kind and it is already out of print.  Printed in English and Polish this work is excellent for both the beginner who wants to keep their work simple or the advanced builder who will want to add lights and motion.
