HASH(0xa1725738) out of 5 stars A detailed, scholarly look at tablet weaving June 25 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is THE book to have if you want to learn about the history of tablet weaving, or about advanced techniques. However, it's not a simple book to understand, and presumes that the reader has some experience in tablet weaving. Definitely for the intermediate to advanced tablet weaver.

HASH(0xa176bce4) out of 5 stars The best book on tablet weaving ever written Jan. 2 1998
By griffevents@cableinet.co.uk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the best book on tablet (card) weaving ever written and will never be surpassed except by a further edition. Collingwood is the acknowledged expert on this ancient and endlessly fascinating weaving technique and his book - an updated edition of the original text - offers the ultimate exploration for both craftsman and historian alike. The descriptions of the various techniques are clear and practical without being in any way over-concise. Only drawback is a few misprints, otherwise this book would easily rate a score of 100%; a lavish, gorgeous book you will treasure. (Particularly useful is the lengthy annotated bibliography.)

HASH(0xa176bc30) out of 5 stars The reviews are for a DIFFERENT BOOK. Nov. 1 2015
By shirley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have not actually seen the book so to be fair I rated it at 5 stars..

The problem I have is that it appears that the other comments associated with this book are actually referencing a completely different book. My comment is for the "Weaving for Worship: Handweaving for Churches" book - it is not "The Techniques of Tablet Weaving by Peter Collingwood that is referenced by another commenter here.
