The first hundred pages of this ~300 page book deal with the history of tabletwoven bands: who made them and why, where they were used, design sources, historical tablets and looms, and some technical information about the bands. The next ~170 pages lists historical bands. Each listing gives culture, time-period, materials, and any other information available. Many (most?) also have a pattern for the design. The last couple dozen pages are the note and bibliography. I found this to be an excellent source of both general and specific information about historical tablet-woven bands. It is also obviously aimed at those who wish to recreate for themselves something documentably from times long ago.
