Format: Paperback
There are no simple projects here. From the outset, the book will discourage the beginner with the complexity of the 17th-20th century beaded items shown, although I enjoyed studying the photos of complicated beadwork on European purses, African Masai, Seneca, Winnebago, and other Native American pieces. Don's projects, in spite of detailed instructions, are going to require a lot of effort, even from an expert. There is plenty of inspiration from the 37-page gallery at the book's end. If you are intent on tackling loom weaving at its most complex, here is your book.

This is not a beginner's looming book, nor is it a pattern book. It is a book that will help you understand the history of loomed beading, how to do it, and how to design your own patterns.
I recommend this book for beaders who are experienced with looming and want to expand their horizons, because it will do that.
I will admit tho, I think this book is worth it for the eye candy alone!

Format: Paperback
This is a nice book with great pictures. However, I think it is important to note that if you are searching for a beginner's how to loom book, this might not be a good starting point. The author does include many patterns and some lovely photos of exquisite loomwork, but the patterns are for folks who have some loom experience behind them.
