SUMMARY- You get great photography and useful photos. Instructions are in Japanese, but you get diagrams of all the patterns, making Ms. Fujishige's book a great find for anyone no matter their nationality. There are some really striking pieces in this book that got me thinking "yeah, I would love to wear that!" It feels like I've waited forever for another Fujishige book - but greatness takes time. There are a lot of exquisite pieces in this one, especially for those who love tatted collars on their nice clothes, and the organic beauty of tatted jewelry. She gave the English name for each piece in the photo gallery, so I am able to give you a Table of Contents. The description of what the pattern is in parentheses is my own addition for the benefit of people seeking information on the book's contents. I love, love, love Ms. Fujishige's books, and this one is no exception. Worth every penny.
