Re: A good illustrated reference?

First, I want to second the recommendations of Doshu's books, Best Aikido, Progresssive Aikido, and the other one I can't recall the name of right now.

I also read Carol's book and found it very enjoyable, and quite good. I really liked the ecumenical persepctives! However, Doshu's books have more photos and I think they would be more useful for learning technique names. They're very clear and focused. And thanks for that tip, Carol! I look forward to competing with you on the bookshelves someday!
