SUMMARY- Chilton books has never let me down, so I knew I had to have this one. Mr. Sharpton was a mathematics professor and developed his interest in string art to help teach his students applied math skills. Yes, I'm a nerd - I think this is very cool. There are more sophisticated designs in this book than others I've seen. He gives you 4-5 threading patterns in the basic tutorial(more than I've seen in a lot of other books) and 24 patterns.
