SUMMARY- There's a half dozen or so traditional edgings, and a nice selection of doily patterns. The book is written in French, but there are diagrams for all the patterns, so if you are experienced enough to read diagrams, you should be able to use this book. She sticks to traditional techniques, and gives you good photos of her samples. For her tutorial photos, she used a very fine white thread that was nearly invisible against the background, so the space she used to go over the basics felt wasted to me. Otherwise, I'd only recommend this book to people who love doing doilies and mats.
