SUMMARY- I got a random mix of foreign language tatting books from a lovely lady who is retiring and reducing her stash. Among all the treasures was this little booklet that had obviously been photocopied from another tatter's collection(the original collector stamped her books with her name and address). All the pages appear to be there. I have no idea yet whether the cover was originally in color, though I'm guessing from the way it photocopied that it was. The patterns are very traditional fare, with lots of narrow edgings and tiling medallions, and one oval doily that is mostly chains. The patterns do not have any written instructions, instead you get diagrams that show the knots so you can count them yourself, rather than doing a simpler diagram with numbers indicating the stitch count.
