I stumbled over this book and simply had to buy it ! The authors' interest is in linking mathematics and craft ! --Cally Booker, chairman of the Journal for Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, on her blog, August 2011 The editors have collected nine projects from various authors and have presented them attractively in this beautiful book. ! The book is wide-ranging, covering many mathematical topics and many craft ideas. ! This book would be a great present for a mathematician interested in craft or a craft enthusiast open to thinking about mathematics. --Vicky Neale, Plus magazine, August 2011
