SUMMARY- There's no introduction or explanation for why this book was put together, just a note below the Table of Contents declaring all the profits would go to the Lace Guild. No contact information was given for the Lace Guild, and there is no copyright date on the book. I'm guessing this was done to showcase a variety of laces, and they gave the patterns for each(except the tatted Summer Bouquet picture). This isn't a how-to book. If you don't already know how to make that particular lace, you won't be able to follow the patterns.

The interior is all crisp black-and-white, but the cover needed a different contrast color - white thread and ivory shuttle do not show up well against a pale yellow background.
