If you’re the person who gave me this book years and years ago…thank you. For the life of me, I can’t remember who it was or when it was or where I put my keys an hour ago. Nevertheless, this was a fun reference to pull out and play using my custom dyed bandanas. I think this book is out of print, but do yourself a solid and invest in one. It’s so cheeky it’s cool.
