SUMMARY- This book appears to be about mastering different design elements. Her instructions are in Japanese, but she gives good diagrams that can be read by anyone. She has started to branch out a lot more in this book, employing split rings, block tatting and onion rings along with other intriguing examples like putting beads in unusual places. Mrs. Morimoto is a shuttle tatter, so her lessons are designed for that tool. It's clear she loves to experiment, and shares those experiments with us in a wide gamut of techniques. I spent a lot of time just staring at her samples, then flipping back to the tutorials to see how they were executed. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is not put off by foreign languages(or can read Japanese) and willing to work a little to add to your repertoire.
