Elastic Skunk
If you're looking to learn how to do sprang, this an excellent book to start with. The directions are clear and easy to follow, and there are lots of illustrations of finished pieces, making it easier to wrap you head around what to do with sprang (the sprang bikini is a personal favorite). It also includes a section on how to do sprang on a traditional floor loom. While there are not quite as many details as in other books (see Peter Collingwood's book on sprang), it is sufficient to learn the technique, and somewhat more affordable than the alternative.

The book is good, but it focuses more on making art with sprang than making useful items. I wanted a book to help me make scarves, bags, etc.

Interesting great tool for learning Sprang

I learned sprang in the 70s from this book, and I hope to renew that skill with it again. The book was in perfect shape, and so was the dust jacket. It was shipped right out.
