KNOTS A Step-by-step Illustrated Guide to New and Unusual Ornamental Knots

About the Author: Born in 1972, JD grew up in and around the Bay Area. He spent his mid-twenties living and working in the redwoods of the San Mateo Mountains, where he developed a fascination with rope ties and knots. Following years of reading, research and practice, he established the art of fusion knotting. JD has since created over 100 instructional videos demonstrating his techniques that are available on his YouTube channel, Tying It All Together (youtube.com/tyingitalltogether ). He lives and works in San Francisco, California.
