Sometimes finding a basketry related book or other publication can be a very difficult thing to do. Often this type of publication is originally self-published or published by a small press. In many cases the book was published in a small run to begin with and fell out of print rapidly. Trying to find some of these books may end up being an elusive search, but if you are patient and persistent you will probably be successful in the end.

Let me share with you some of my favorite online book search utilities and other strategies for locating that basketry book that you may have thought you would never find.

Often among the hardest things to locate are the publishing details of each book you are searching for. This list contains the title, author, ISBN and other unique details of some of the more difficult to locate basketry books.
