With 256 pages and a weight of 1100 g (2.5 lb) this is a hardcover book with a capital B. The woven cover, uncoated paper and a ribbon place marker make it feel extra special – it is an item you want to keep on your coffee table, a book that will make even non-sock knitters want to cast on.

52 Weeks of Socks (English only) | Knitting Book
I love the variety of sock designs in this book. I plan to knit my way through the book very happily! The designs are all interesting and very wearable and I love that there are so many designers - some I know and some that are new to me. The book is like an art book - such beautiful pictures and quality printing! It follows the trend of art books in using grey inks and pale colored pages so it's not as sharp and clear to read for those of us with ageing eyes, but it's definitely workable. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves socks!
