Overview

The Ashley Book of Knots takes us back to a time when knots saved lives and put dinner on the table. Whether out at sea or in a pioneer cabin, knots were a part of daily life, one that is nearly lost today. But in this attractive, well-organized archive of more than 3,900 different knots–presented through 7,000 illustrations–the art of knot tying lives on, both as a historical reference and a reservoir of handy knowledge.
