SUMMARY- The designs are crisp and beautiful with a good photo of each finished work. If you don't speak Danish, I recommend holding out for the English translation instead of the original, despite the inclusion of graphs. The graphs aren't all numbered so you know how many stitches between picots and joins, which is what I thought was the point of giving us graphs. This is the first in a series of tatting books put out by this publisher. Other than having to wait for the English version to arrive so I could figure out some of the graphs, I enjoyed tatting all of these for my snowflake sampler.
