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...

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.
