SUMMARY- I haven't included the Table of Contents because they are in Japanese. Photography is lush and the samples presented are quite appealing. The work is very traditional. Instructions are in Japanese, but there are diagrams for all the patterns, and diagrams can be read by anyone! The patterns given: (5)Doilies, (4)Coaster Motifs, Small motifs suitable for framing, glass ball ornament, Nosegay, Snowflake and flower motifs, Bookmarks and edgings, Pincushions, Necklaces, Earrings, Heart Applique, choker, Garters, Hair Bows, Collar and Blouse Trim, Small Butterflies and Vegetable motifs, a couple pages of trims.

There is a tutorial that mixes illustrations with photos that is more than just a token stab at teaching the basic ring.
