    “Swimming with Spears.” Life-changingly beautiful stuff.

    The ‘Delectables’ by Edward Bing Lee are amazing!

    See this video of Bing and his knotting: http://vimeo.com/12239498.

    His beautiful work far exceeds the brown-and-orange hang-me-in-a-planter macreme of the ’70s which denigrated the form.

    I wonder if he started with a Boy Scouut knot board …

    (The stunning last-page might benefit from a small-type reference or two)
