SUMMARY- This book is entirely in Japanese except for the numbers on the diagrams. There's a ton of eye candy in this one - including a monogram set in hiragana(short lesson in Japanese language: There's the male character set/alphabeth, which is the katakana, a female character set/alphabet, which is hiragana - both alphabets work much like the Roman alphabet in that they represent sounds, not words. Then there's Kanji, which are pictographs borrowed from the Chinese written language that represent words and phrases. You need to know about 500 kanji in order to read a Japanese newspaper. The average Japanese knows about 3,000 of these symbols! Katakana are used primarily for words imported from foreign languages, while hiragana is the primary alphabet). I loved the gallery of full-color photos of some of her other stuff - and miffed that they didn't also come with patterns. But there is a lot packed into the book, and if you're an experienced tatter, I think it really is a must-have.

If you are bilingual and can puzzle out the other bib info for me, please contact me. I'll send scans of the relevant pages and update this entry when I get the information from you.
