This book had some interesting ideas but I found the instructions to be lacking in specifics.

As a instruction book on how to knit the samples shown, the illustrations are often unclear and not for beginners.

As an idea book to get the blood boiling and the brain firing up, absolutely wonderful! I have a dozen projects inspired by this book.

A side note: there seem to be more and more knitting books that give erroneous technique information, or present projects that, as described, cannot be made. This book does flirt with that line, but the results are possible. Unsure if poor translation is the culprit.
