5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, well illustrated, informative, Feb. 11 2001
This review is from: Chinese Knotting (Hardcover)
Crystal clear step-by-step diagrams and well thought out explanations make this book a valuable addition to your craft library. Simple enough for a complete beginner but inspiring enough for a seasoned knot artist, this book takes on progressively more difficult knots and gives lovely examples of how to use them. Scattered bits of Chinese lore and history offer a delightful taste of the culture that gave us these complex and elegant knots. Nicely presented photographs and commentary top off this superb craft book. Highest recommendation...

This review is from: Chinese Knotting (Hardcover)
I own, maybe 35 books on knotting. This is one of my favorites. The instructions are clear, easy to follow, nice little history/stories about each knot. I've included several of her knots on one of my knot boards. If you like "fancy" knots for display then you should get this book. She has another written in Chinese but I have been unable to find it. With her illustrations, I would buy it even if it's not in English. Good Book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chinese Knotting, March 11 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Chinese Knotting (Hardcover)
Getting information on this very specific art form is difficult at best. Ms. Chen's book is not only easy to follow but a joy to look at. I only wish she would write a companion volumn. For those who are interested in knotting, you need this book in your library.

5.0 out of 5 stars makes instructions for complex knots very clear, Sept. 11 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Chinese Knotting (Hardcover)
This book was recommended by a friend and she couldn't have been more right. Several knots that I couldn't figure out from the Ashley Book of Knots were made crystal clear by the instructions and diagrams in this book.
