A Supplementary Translation of Makiko Tada’s Comprehensive Treatise of Braids I


with Commentary by Michael Hattori

After many requests, Michael Hattori has come out with a supplementary translation for Makiko Tada's Comprehensive Treatise of Braids: Marudai Braids (CTB 1). Although the book is largely translated into English there remain areas, particularly toward the end of the book, which are not translated and contain important braiding information. In addition, he has added his own commentary which contains expanded braiding information and many extras, such as an explanation of the Japanese weight system (momme), a glossary, and even a handy Japanese pronunciation primer. For any who already own CTB 1 or are considering buying the new 3rd edition, this supplement is a must!

8.5" x 11", 52 pages. Revised edition 2018, spiral bound, published in USA
