SUMMARY- The entire title/subtitle for this book is: "Lace Tatting: INSTRUMENTS working points and movements of the base application of lace cloth", which makes little sense in English. Pattern instructions are in written notation(Italian) and not broken down at all. You get wonderful photography throughout. There's some beautiful stuff in this book. A skilled tatter would be able to puzzle out the patterns - they aren't that complicated - but I would not hand this book to a new tatter. The language barrier and lack of diagrams would be frustrating.
