Great starter book into tapestry weaving on a basic frame loom. Good explanations of the various stitches and knots, suggested materials, techniques, etc. The instructions and their accompanying photos are clear and easy to follow. I found the photos of the the author's work to be very inspirational. I check out a LOT of art and craft books, and sometimes find one I like so much that I get my own copy, rather than checking it out over and over. This is one of those books which I liked well enough to buy.
