SUMMARY- While the original Danish is there, there are translations of everything into English and Italian. She also includes good diagrams, which need no translation. Patterns are not written out, but there are written instructions describing the tricky bits. She employs several more advanced techniques in this book like the cluny leaf, 3D tatting, and switching out colors by encapsulating more than one thread. She plays a lot with color, and gets some really cheerful and bright results. I like Iris Niebach's work - she never disappoints. This isn't a book I'd hand to a novice tatter, but if you are an experienced tatter, you'll love these designs.
