SUMMARY- This book includes work from 10 different leading Japanese designers. The book is in Japanese, but there are diagrams for the patterns. The photography is lush and crisp - what we've come to expect from Japanese tatting books. The cover displays the work of Yusai Shokoin. Not everything grabbed me, but there was plenty that did. It also was useful for exposing me to several designers I'd not seen the work of previously. I felt it was well worth the money I spent.
