The best book I found is "Singer Upholstery Basics." It is very well written and has many detailed pictures.
I sent this on to a friend that was an upholsterer. Here is what he said
"I did a search on Amazon.com for books on Furniture Upholstery and came up with a big list.
I'm not familiar with any of them but there are several that should show one how to tie springs. It isn't an easy chore since the method can vary from one piece of furniture to another. I wasn't comfortable tackling a new spring tying job even after two years of classes on upholstery at the Voc Tech.
Maybe Mr. Kline can take that list of books to his local library to see if they have any of them."
Hope this helps,

I would go to the library, and ask them if they have any books or videos that could provide you with helpful information.
Many times, if your library doesn't have what you are looking for, another library will "lend" them what you need, and you can check it out.
