Based on 10 years of sample exchanges, this is both a pattern book and a social history. Each of the sixty braids has full instructions and is accompanied by a page written by the maker, one of 42 braiders from around the world. The notes are sometimes personal, sometimes technical, but always interesting, often with details not found in an everyday textbook. 
Useful appendices give suppliers' addresses and an annotated book list.
