SUMMARY- This book is in Japanese and English. The translation to English is with the Japanese instructions and there are diagrams. The English isn't proof read, so you get startling sentences like "A porch seemed to be vivid and cute."(she meant to use the word "pouch"). The first lesson starts with small 3D cherry blossoms for earrings. She clearly likes 3D work, and there are some really lovely designs - I especially like the two scarves. She does include diagrams, but no close-up photos of the motifs, so this book really needs you to be an experienced tatter. Like with all import books, it's a little pricey as well, but I felt I got my money's worth. I like her style, and hope to see more books from her in the future.
