Description - The Sailmaker's Apprentice by Emiliano Marino

'A clearly illustrated, superb step-by-step guide' - "Cruising World". More than a how-to guide to designing, making, repairing, and improving sails, "The Sailmaker's Apprentice" combines 700 detailed drawings with a witty, wise, and philosophically probing commentary that is as much about living a life of self-reliance and harmony as it is about making sails. Here you will find a visual feast for the sailor as well as an indispensable guide for the mariner. 'The basics of traditional sailmaking ...are artfully, lavishly, even passionately elaborated and enriched...The author has created not just a new standard reference ...but a virtual epic poem...The best and most comprehensive book on sailmaking and sail repair to be published in a long time' - "WoodenBoat". 'Reveals true mastery' - "Northern Mariner". 'The accepted standard volume on sailmaking' - Ensign.
