This is a design book, not a project book. Suggested setts and materials are generally not included. Each draft includes threading or block profile, tie-up, treadling or peg plan[both if possible], and a drawdown if applicable. Suggested uses for the draft are included. The author of each design is included.
The book also includes a CD with all drafts as .wif files.

CW Early Weaving Books on CD
This is your opportunity to have a weaving rare book library on your computer.
CW is making available CD-ROMs [Windows, Max, and Linux compatible] containing a number of early printed weaving books including Franz Donat’s 9015 patterns, John Murphy’s Treatise on the Art of Weaving, the 18th century pattern books of J M Frickinger and J M Kirschbaum, and many other difficult to obtain books. These may be downloaded from Ralph Griswold’s web site but it is much easier to pop a CD into your computer and access them in that fashion. Ralph kindly provided Complex Weavers with CD-ROMs of the materials. The proceeds above costs will go to help fund future CW publications. As of April 28, 2004, there are available the first five volumes in the series. For lists of the titles available on each of the five CD’s, download cwcdtitl Note: this file requires Acrobat Reader which may be downloaded from here:
