Knots: The Complete Visual Guide
by Pawson, Des
This is an updated and expanded edition of the bestselling "Handbook of Knots". Pawson’s approach is visual: great photos of hands tying knots using different colours of rope to make every step very clear. This book covers stopper knots, binding knots, bends, hitches, loops, braids and sennits, and splicing and whipping. Pawson also matches knots with specific needs/activities such as camping, sailing, decorating, and climbing.
