by Frank Rosenow
First published in 1976, with a second edition in 1982, Rosenow's book is now back on the market in this reprint edition. It deserves to be. Reading this little volume and practicing the skills therein is like being an apprentice to a master sailmaker showing you everything from tool selection to the details of how to hold a needle.
