For the marudai
In English

One of the early English-language works. It is interesting to note that the
dai on the cover is a takadai, although the book is about the marudai. It is
also interesting to note that the explanation of the diagrams states that
the movements are the same if the braid forms above or below the mirror.
[This is not always true.]

Shows how to make the braids listed below. Movement diagrams use "steering
wheel" notation. Braid photos are gray-scale and very grainy.
