By Doramay Keasbey. This book is a home study course in block design. Doramay explains what makes a block and how warp threading and weft treadling interact to create it. She encourages you to fill in the grids within the book or on your own graph paper to explore how blocks work. Once you have grasped this, you move on to formulating profile drafts and then plugging in actual threading for each block. A large section provides substitution keys for a variety of common structions. This isn't simple stuff but by going through the book beginning to end and doing the exercises, you will become comfortable with block design as a tool in your own textile work.
