This book is one of the three books to be found in Aidan's combined trilogy "The Celtic Design Book (Celtic Design)" which sells for the same amount. Having that book already I was concerned that might be the case before I bought this one, but was not able to verify one way or the other online, so hence my warning here. The one advantage of this book on its own is that its more manageable than the other which is easily three times as thick. I gave it five stars as it is a good as others have said.

A good research book for making your own needlework patterns.

My review for this book is the same as for the Beginner's Manual from the same author. I guess I expected more instruction. There are fabulous examples of historical knotwork, but very little instruction on how to create your own. I suppose copying is the way to teach yourself this style of art.
