SUMMARY- This book is in Japanese and English. The translation is with the Japanese instructions and there are diagrams. There is great color photography throughout, and you get multiple close-up photos of elements of each project, so that you can check the diagram against the actual piece, if you're having trouble. The wrapped Loop Style Chain is certainly different from any other tatting I've seen(see cover). I really like that. Ms. Yuuko clearly LOVES beads, but in this early work, you can still see that it is beads incorporated into tatting - and the alchemy here is gorgeous. I'm really pleased with this third offering, and hope she continues to share her patterns with us. If you enjoy working with beads, this one is a must have.
