My New Japanese Crochet Book!

My local yarn and craft shop, Barakat, has been having a great sale the past few weeks, and  to my delight, the Japanese  books were included!  I was thrilled to find this gem (ISBN 978-4-529-02412-9).  It is a book that illustrates what stitch each symbol represents, and it includes step by step instructions on how to create the stitch.  I was hoping to find a reference like this, because many times I will discover a symbol in a stitch dictionary that I have never seen before, and that is not mentioned in the back of the book.  I haven't put it to use yet, so I don't know if every symbol I will ever need is in it, but it does include 59 different stitches.  I am sure it will be an invaluable resource!
