    Excellent and useful for all bow makers but a great resource of straightforward information for beginner bowyers A charming hand written and illustrated notebook that brings you closer to the author who is a great companion as he describes three bow types and how to make them Highly recommended as a one stop book for those of us starting out on the fascinating journey that is bowyery
