This is one of the best books on caning and seat weaving among the several I took from the library. It has clear photographs as well as drawn diagrams and covers a range of issues one is likely to encounter when reweaving a piece of furniture. It also discusses more difficult pieces, which has the effect of making the more straightforward pieces look positively easy. I has a chart for sizes of cane and discusses possible variations in weaving design.
