A beautifully presented, practical gift guide to the age-old art of tying knots.

The book features step-by-step instructions on how to tie 40 fundamental knots, and then shows you how your new skills can be transformed into a selection of practical and decorative projects.

The book is divided in four sections:

  • Classic Knots – featuring the Reef Bow and the True Lover’s Knot. Knots in this chapter can be used to create a wall hanging.
  • Camping Knots – featuring the Tent Pole Hitch and the Rope Ladder. Knots in this chapter can be used to create an outdoor mat and a beaded bracelet.
  • Climbing Knots – featuring the Alpine Butterfly and the Spanish Bowline. Knots in this chapter can be used to make a coaster and a bag.
  • Maritime Knots – featuring the Anchor Bend and the Dry Fly. Knots in this chapter can be used to make a plant hanger and a hammock.

The detailed instructions are complemented by smart step-by-step illustrations, which highlight the tactile quality of the material in hand. The book also includes an introduction with advice on putting together the knot lover’s ultimate toolbox, alongside explanations of key terms and techniques.

Featuring the ultimate crossover of cool craftsmanship and nifty projects, this book is the perfect gift for creative adventurers.
