5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Book Of Knots, 3 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ashley Book of Knots (Hardcover)
I didn't remember the name of this book until I bought another knot book and was prompted to view The Ashley Book of Knots. It was the "look inside" feature that reminded me of when I first saw this book. I was in the Sea Scouts and I was amazed by the diversity and number of knots it contained. The book was owned by one of the adult helpers who guarded it jealously. I haven't seen one since 1976 and after all these years it still held the same excitement. It is a book that is well written and very easy to read. Even if you don't like working ropes it explains the history of knotting and stories of their successes and failures. The book is said to be the bible of knots, I can only say that I am proud to now own it and will have years of fun working my way through it. There really is something in here for everyone, young and old. From tying shoelaces to decorative plaiting, useful or pretty, this book will lead you through it. Don't expect colour or photographs, just clear easy to follow drawings and a story for most of the 3500 plus knots. Enjoy!
