Knots: The Complete Visual Guide is a clear, comprehensive, and practical guide to tying more than 100 knots. The book begins with the basic information you will need for choosing, using, and maintaining ropes. There are then seven sections on different families of knots: stopper knots; binding knots; bends; hitches; loops; plaits and sennits; and splices and whippings. Step-by-step color photographs and captions show exactly how to tie each knot. A gallery spread of photographs of the finished knots opens each chapter, providing a valuable cross-reference to the step-by-step pages. Each chapter contains History spreads, which give the fascinating back-story of how some of the knots came into being and explain their original purpose and function, as well as Thematic spreads, which present the essential knots for a range of activities in a single, easy-to-access location. Double-page picture spreads add color and context throughout the book. Icons show at-a-glance the categories of use for each knot, and the book also contains a full glossary.
