SUMMARY- You get about 60 patterns in this book with a nicely done basic 8-page tutorial stapled into the center(has its own page numbering) with a mixture of photos and illustrations that are fairly easy to follow. The written text is all in German, however, so if you don't have a facility with that language, the written instructions won't help you. The patterns, on the other hand, are all neatly diagrammed on a large foldout sheet of cheap newsprint(I'd make clean photocopies of all the diagrams to tuck into the book as well, if you are fortunate enough to have a copy of this, so that future owners of the book have a shot at having the diagrams too...). Diagrams, of course, can be internationally understood. This book was well ahead of the rise in popularity of diagramming to reach an international audience. It sticks to fairly traditional fare, but I found the designs appealing and well presented, with color photography throughout, with a few cleverly manipulated design elements. This was a happy find!
