Looking for a book about giants
 
Hey there,
I long time ago I saw a really good relief carving of a family of giants. The carving showed a family group including a father with a club, an ugly woman and a scruffy kid picking his nose. The carving was really well done.
The source for the carving was a book about giants in a similar vein to the one about gnomes. Has anyone seen this book or know the exact title or author? I'd like to find a copy. It was beautifuly illustrated.

Thank you,
Dan

the book is "Giants". Illustrated by Julek Heller, Carolyn Scrace and Juan Wijngaard. Devised by David Larkin.Text by Sarah Teale. Publishers: Harry N. Abrams Inc., New York. Peacock Press/ Bantam Books. New York.London. Toronto.
Great book, I always wondered if the people judging the carving of the family knew where the design came from or if they thought the carver actually designed it himself.
