Editorial Assessment

The Ashley Book of Knots takes us again to a time when knots saved lives and put dinner on the desk. Whether out at sea or in a pioneer cabin, knots were a part of day by day life, one that is just about lost these days. However in this attractive, well-geared up archive of more than 3,900 totally different knots–offered through 7,000 illustrations–the artwork of knot tying lives on, each as a historical reference and a reservoir of handy data.
