Title: The Family Creative Workshop, Vol. 19
Edited by: Steven Schepp
Format/Publication Date: HC:1976
Publisher: Plenary Publications International, Inc., NY
Page Count: 122
Book Dimensions(ht. x w.): 11" x 9"
ISBN: 0884590186(And for the entire set:0884590216)

SUMMARY- I was rather startled and pleased to run across this book, and actually ended up spending more time looking at all the other chapters than I did the tatting - which made me decide I had to have the complete set. These are really quite cool. It doesn't hurt that the method of tatting Ms. Mayer teaches in a series of black-and-white photos and clear descriptive text mirrors the style that I use myself. She uses pretty thick cord so that you can see what the thread is doing in the photos.

After the tutorial, you get patterns for: Clover-leaf Handkerchief Edging, Shell-cluster Collar, a child's vest made up of faux granny squares(tatted in colorful yarns), a Sunflower Place Mat(also tatted in yarn and a different faux granny square than the vest), a faux macrame plant hanger(tatted with rug yarn), and an Openwork Tablecloth made of square motifs with triangle motifs as edging. To seal the deal, you also get a tutorial on making your own larger-than-normal clamshell shuttle from balsa wood. It's the examples of tatting with the heavy yarns that grabbed my attention most. There aren't many books that do this.

I'm so taken with this series, I tracked down a complete set so that I could include a catalog of them with this review. The entire set is 23 volumes, with a separate Index. All 24 books are hardbound and have very dramatic samples of 23 of the crafts demonstrated in the books. I usually make the catalog pics smaller than the review picture, but I decided to go with the larger picture for this catalog.

Volume 1: Acrylics to Batik
Page Count: 128
Notes: I'm psyched that Dr. Isaac Asimov contributed to this series. His nonfiction writing is as entertaining and thought-provoking as his fiction. I actively look for the science texts he wrote as the most engrossing way to learn about any subject he cared enough to write about. Yes, I'm terribly geeky - but I'm not wrong. Dr. Asimov was a brilliant writer who could have made shopping lists fascinating. We will never have his like again.
