4.0 out of 5 stars Emphasize "booklet"
40 pages, counting both outside covers, not a weighty tome. And, it presents only four patterns: Persian 3-in-1, Japanese 12-in-2, Helm's weave, and dragonscale.

But, within the limits it set for itself, this does a fair job. Each technique comes with pages of photos showing each link in each state of development. Actually, that's not my favorite presentation -...

40 pages, counting both outside covers, not a weighty tome. And, it presents only four patterns: Persian 3-in-1, Japanese 12-in-2, Helm's weave, and dragonscale.

But, within the limits it set for itself, this does a fair job. Each technique comes with pages of photos showing each link in each state of development. Actually, that's not my favorite presentation - Whyte's color-coded diagrams work better for me. But, given the contrasting wires in these projects, the loss isn't so drastic.

Good, maybe not the best, and an hour of web searching might serve you better. But, if you like the paper format, this will get you up and running - despite some tendency for the author to advertise wire products she's associated with.

This review is from: Artistic Wire 'Advanced Chain Maille' - Technique Booklet New
These booklets by Beadalon staff and experts, not a full book but short booklets are nice for the beginner to pick up tips and ideas from. Lots of good info. Arrived in excellent condition, even packed in a special ziplock bag to prevent any damage in shipping.

Instructions are easy to follow. I am new to chain maille but I have to say I have never been so obsessed by something so quickly as I have been by chain maille.

This is a great step-by-step book for learning how to make more advanced chainmail. I'm a visual learner and therefore, books like these are tremendously helpful, almost like someone being right at your shoulder helping you along. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book for learning more chainmail patterns!
