SUMMARY- This little booklet is more interesting for its historical context than the information it provides - there are so many basic books since it was produced that have better illustrations and of course there are many wonderful tutorials. But it's very hard to find and it was the first Konior' publication on tatting. I was pleased to be able to add it to the bibliography, but I certainly wouldn't go crazy trying to find it for any purpose other than to complete a determined person's collection.

Judith Connors wrote a small biographic piece for Craftree.
