SUMMARY- The Ikuta books were very pricey, but I felt worth the price of admission. She experiments a lot with technique in this one, covering a whole lot of ground in 95 pages. There are a lot more small motifs suitable for stationary, but there are also some larger pieces, edgings, jewelry and insertions. These books are in Japanese, but there are diagrams for most of the patterns. This is not a book I'd hand to a novice except to provide a gallery of what they can aspire to, but an experienced tatter should be able to follow most of the diagrams.
