作者も手持ちの『STORA VÄVBOKEN』と同じ人だし。そもそも、STORA VÄVBOOKENって、BIG WEAVING BOOKらしいから、内容も近いかもしれないし、と思ったのです。

届いてみたら、表紙に「Also Known as Stora Vävboken」とわざわざ書いてありました……。つまり同じ本?表紙は全然違うのになあ、と思いつつ中身を確認すると。


本の構成は(英語だからスウェーデン語よりはわかるということを差し引いても)『The Big Book of Weaving』の方がわかりやすいように思います。
# ていうか、もしかして、私が持っている
# 『STORA VÄVBOKEN』の改訂版が出ていて、
# それを英語訳したのでしょうか?
