SUMMARY- I've truncated the Table of Contents a bit, only giving the main chapter headings. Tatting gets a paragraph, and on the facing page, a photo of a traditional square motif used to make an antimacassar. You get excellent photo examples of a very wide variety of laces, with brief descriptions. If you are looking for a brief survey, this books for you.
