Resources for learning about building frames

Little Fish Framebuilding Tutorial

A few scans of Richard Talbot's 1979 book, Designing and Building Your Own Frameset: An Illustrated Guide for the Amateur Bicycle Builder
Talbot is a classic, long out of print. I have a xeroxed copy. I can make further xeroxes on request.

When I started out, Little Fish and the Talbot book were my main guides.

There's also Tim Paterek's book
