The hundreds of sharp and colorful illustrations make this a valuable book. There is also much insightful historical information on the weaving process and origin of designs. There are many passages where the text does not flow well or bits of information seem to be missing making it difficult to follow the writer's train of thought.
Great book and it arrived in great condition to be given as a gift.
