SUMMARY- Lots of great (black-and-white) photos, but photos for the patterns are not with the patterns - they're in a section in the middle of the book. I would not try to learn how to tat(or knit, or crochet) from the tutorials in this book - not sure why many authors bother to include tutorials if they aren't detailed enough to help a true beginner. But the research for the first half of the book is a fascinating read and well worth trying to find this book.
