This new book is a compilation of the work of Pat Godin spanning 50 years.  Pat describes in detail not only the creation of his waterfowl carvings, but also the inspiration behind the concepts shown in his work.  Having studied at the University of Guelph to attain a B.Sc. degree in Fisheries and wildlife Biology and a M.Sc. degree in Waterfowl Ecology, Pat talks about the science of the bird and how that influences his thought process when creating his marvellous and spectacular carvings.


Five years in the making, this book contains upwards of 180 stunning photos, along with comprehensive and interesting explanations of various techniques for carving, detailing, and painting. Much of the photography showing the progression of carving and painting is from the documentation of Pat’s many waterfowl decoy projects.


Michael Arthurs in the Foreword writes “A sumptuously illustrated book of inspiration that will arouse new ideas in any artistic endeavor.  In many ways it is instructive but more importantly, it’s just an enjoyable read”.


All books ordered through will be personally autographed by Pat.  As well, an Addendum will be included with text and photography describing his eighteenth World Title featuring the Best in World Shootin’ Rig of Northern Black Ducks.



The expected release date is mid-May 2023 and any orders taken will be shipped immediately when inventory is received.
