SUMMARY- The book is entirely in French. I went ahead and typed in the Table of Contents for those who are multilingual. You can guess the meaning of many of the words anyway. It goes over the basics and teaches classic designs in both edgings and doilies - very traditional fair - along with a small handful of other useful patterns like a collar, bookmark, and small motifs for baby clothes. Instructions are in written notation, but there are diagrams as well that anyone can read.
