    If there is anything you want or need to know about flax and linen, it is in this book. From growing through the various stages of processing flax to spinning linen thread and weaving cloth, you will find it in the first 100 or so pages. A little past this the author gives us a number of patterns for contemporary weavings of linen, from napkins to clothing to art pieces for the wall. My favorite part of the whole book, however, is the section in the back with reminiscences of people who grew up in the communities where flax was grown and processed. This makes the whole book a treasure. In English.
