This book is an interesting approach to learning how to design woven cloth. The first section is an exercise in weaving a gamp - in this book called a sampler blanket. For the American weaver, the format is unconventional. There are warping plans, threading plans, lifting plans and wefting plans, but all seem to be explained thoroughly at the beginning of the book. The second section deals with design - structure, color, color and weave and more. Part 3 has 50 projects using a wide variety of color and techniques and I didn't see anything that used more than four shafts.

This is a grand idea book and it could be used as a self-study in design, or as the text in a study group. All the photos are in color and the whole book is visually stimulating. Grand addition to the weaving library. ( )
