    Author Information
    Geoffrey Budworth has been closely associated with the art, craft and science of tying knots for more than fifty years. Twenty-five years ago he promoted the systematic evaluation of knotted clues preserved at scenes of crime, and the presentation of evidence in the courts, which has resulted in him being called 'the Father of Forensic knotting'. In 1982 he co-founded the International Guild of Knot Tyers and is a past President of the Guild as well as a frequent contributor to its quarterly magazine Knotting Matters.
