SUMMARY- For the most part, you don't get who the designers were - most of the patterns were pulled from out-of-copyright publications. You do get an interesting article by Dora Young(and a plug for her latest book), as well as a reprint of a few of Myrtle Hamilton's doilies. There's a really cool eclectic mix of patterns in this book. My copy is pretty yellowed, so the photos have darkened and are harder to see - the paper quality is pretty low - but a fun find all the same.
