Book Review: Knot Another!

I was sent the book "Knot Another!" to review which introduces the reader to maedeup. It is written by South African artist Elsabe J. van Rensburg. A chance diplomatic posting brought her to South Korea where she discovered maedeup, taught to her by Kim Mi-Hae. She would keep a notebook where she would sketch and detail each step including hints to record even how to make the most difficult knots.

"Knot Another" contains 50 maedeup knots with clear, detailed instructions and beautiful photography. The book also includes instructions to make beautiful and unique gifts. Maedeup is not the easiest craft to learn but the satisfaction of what you can create is worth the price. It is rare to be able to learn such a craft from someone who has actually lived in the country and learned from the experts.
"Knot Another" will teach and inspire you. I was delighted to be able to review this wonderful book.
