SUMMARY- The black and white photo pages remind me a great deal of the old Coats & Clark pattern books, with all the numbered edgings and motifs lined up neatly in rows for their group shots. There are no instructions for the patterns - just diagrams all crowded together on the last two pages of the booklet. The diagrams are small and cramped and hard to read. I wouldn't hand this book to a novice, but a more experienced tatter may find it useful. It's all pretty traditional stuff. You get a lot of patterns all crammed into the 14 pages. The print is in Spanish, with English translations next to it.

I tried unsuccessfully to find a copyright date for these booklets. My best guess is the late 1990's - but it is a guess.
