A word about the production, which other readers have mentioned. This is a photo-heavy book, with full-page shots of completed scarves. Each brief introduction to a design uses another full page. Margins are wide and type is indeed small. But the type is well-spaced and patterns are not word-heavy so, even with two cataract surgeries, a corneal transplant and strong reading glasses, I have no trouble reading it. The how-to photos, which often illustrate Barr's unusual multi-needle techniques, are among the clearest I've ever seen. I'm less delighted with the big pictures of the finished objects. Tyllie Barbosa is described as a food and product photographer. As a creative director and former editor, I'd hire her any day. The styling is beautiful and evocative, the lighting is great. But this is knitting photography: the reader contemplating spending weeks on a project wants to see what the whole item looks like, not an arty cropped or folded version.
