Charles Tuttle Co.
160 pag. hardcover 22 x 29 cm
The Complete Book of Chinese Knotting is the culmination of 20 years of research into the ancient art of Chinese knotting by renowned authority Lydia Chen. Inspired by the decorative knots embellishing ancient artifacts such as pots, jade, statuary, boxes and paintings, the author has systematically classified the basic knots, many almost forgotten, and their variations, as well as developed new knots using various knotting combinations and innovative materials.
In addition to a useful summary of the four major techniques for tying basic knots and the nine main ways of modifying them, the author introduces 56 brand new knots and creative designs which can be used to make jewelry, ornaments and stylish wardrobe additions.
