SUMMARY- The instructions are in Danish, but she uses symbolic notation(for the most part) and she provides diagrams. You'll have to match up the notation to the diagram, however, because she doesn't put much of the stitch counts on the diagram. This book is only about half the pages of her first book, but still has a nice assortment of new patterns. I was able to order it from a Dutch book-ordering site: www.saxo.com and I was able to muddle through the ordering pages despite not knowing any word of Dutch other than "orkis" - and it was at my door within days, not weeks!

The patterns are designed to fit a small table top tree and not overwhelm it - I particularly liked her star top and the pattern for a split ring garland - I could easily imagine doing it in metalic threads to really make it pop. There were ten years between this book and her last one - I'm hoping it won't be quite so long before her next one(if she's still tatting). I was very pleased to add her books to my collection.
