This is a hardback book.

From the info inside the dust jacket.

..."This book offers a comprehensive guide to macrame: to its history, its technique and its application.  A detailed survey of decorative knotting since prehistoric days right through to the present day is followed by an encyclopedic guide to knots and knotting techniques, illustrated with clear, easy-to-follow diagrams and sketches.  Instructions are given for coping with technical problems, hints on working methods, and suggestions for both traditional and modern applications of knots and knotting patterns.   The final section gives a number of items to make, each complete with full making instructions.

The man beautiful examples illustrated, some historic examples, others the work of art students and experts, will help to give you further ideas for adapting patterns to suit your own requirements.   For inevitably when you have acquired a working knowledge of this most personal of crafts you will want to go on to create designs for yourself.   As a satisfying and rewarding form of self-expression macrame is unique: it also has a universal appeal - for men, women and children, for young and old.

The beginner will find this book the perfect introduction to macrame work, while the already seasoned knotting enthusiast will be inspired and encouraged by the many new and challenging design ideas.   And as a reference source for beginner and experienced knotter alike, the book is invaluable."
