Complete Shibari, Volume 1: Land
by Douglas Kent
Complete Shibari Volume 1: Land explores the essential ground-based ties and forms of shibari. With short, clear explanations and over 440 lavish, step-by-step illustrations and photographs, Douglas Kent introduces the basic "building blocks," then guides you in applying those basics to create a full range of beautiful and exciting ground-based shibari ties.
This is not a "knot book"-- if you can tie an overhand knot, you already know half the knots you'll ever need. This practical, hands-on guide to doing shibari covers everything from choosing and preparing rope, to scene safety, to the techniques... and the reasoning behind the techniques.
Complete Shibari Volume 1: Land is a ground-breaking, must-have book for anyone interested in playing with rope.
