OOPS! I received a whole run of Randwulf's Doublets from the printer in which the pattern sheet is flipped left for right. You'd need to read the labels in a mirror, but the pattern pieces are the correct sizes and shapes. The instruction manuals are perfectly normal. You can have the flip-flopped pattern at substantial discount.

The Pavilion Book
by John LaTorre

Here is a useful guide to obtaining and maintaining a medieval tent. 160 pages, soft cover, illustrated by the author.

The Pavilion Book $18.00 (includes US postage)

Here's Randwulf's review of the book:

Book Review
The Pavilion Book: A Guide to Buying, Maintaining, and Living in a Medieval-Style Tent
by John LaTorre

Reviewed by Randall Whitlock

Mr. LaTorre is a tentmaker/sailmaker/glider maker with more than thirty years experience building and working with medieval-style pavilions within the Society For Creative Anachronism, where he is known as Master Johann von Drachenfels. This 160-page soft-cover book is his compilation of important concepts, tips, and tricks for your own tent. Even if you are a cheating bastard like me in a disguised mundane popup, you'll find plenty of useful advice on tools, materials, and troubleshooting. Mr. LaTorre's prose is as clear as a fine page-turner novel.

Good things I took out of the book immediately include:
--Square tent pegs are easier for teardown. Just give them a quarter-turn and the square peg makes a round hole. They come right up when you want them.
--Fine instructions for washing your tent and preventing mildew.
--Much-needed advice on fireproofing.
--Complete directions for building the "BC Type Sunshade" a very simple pavilion, great for daytime events here in the sunny southwest.
