The Qajaq Book is one of the few writings describing in detail how to build a skin-on-frame kayak. It encompasses a thousands of years old trade, translated into modern terms and images. The book was written for the passionate boat builders, supplementing what was already written on this subject. However, by comparison to other books, The Qajaq Book treats kayak building as a whole without emphasizing a certain boat from a certain period. Most of its content reflects years of traditional knowledge, but there are also a few novelties, which sprang out of the author's own boat building experience.
The content is tuned for the possibilities of the European builders, but this doesn't mean the book cannot be read by others. It will continuously be updated and re-edited, with new images and some changes in the text too.
The book is filled with expressive pictures, complementing the text, as after all an image speaks one thousand words and the text has some humor in it here and there, in order to avoid the monotony of a winter project. Its price is deliberately kept low, in order to have the book accessible to everybody, especially the young folks out there who nowadays forgot what their hands can do.
