SUMMARY- There's a nice call out to Myrtle Hamilton in the introduction, one of the designers I love most. I've got a page dedicated to her and her work higher up in the bibliography, if you'd like to know more about this prolific designer. The Table of Contents in this book are given as rough categories, then as a list of all the contributing designers. It's a great list of "Who's Who" in the tatting field at the time. Some names you won't know, but there are many that you will. The cover scan is somewhat misleading as it shows only a plentitude of butterflies, but there are a lot of different motifs covered too(see Table of Contents). Instructions are a gamut of written, symbolic and diagrammed - they are not all one standard notation. There's a small section of color pages in the center of the book showing off some of the more colorful motifs - the pages are otherwise in black-and-white. I presume since the patterns came from the online chat group that they have been test tatted one and all by a variety of tatters. I'm a big fan of compilations of this nature - I love sampling a wide variety of designers, and an even bigger fan of Georgia Seitz, who has been a linchpin in the tatting community for decades. She did a superb job with this compilation, bringing together a diverse assortment of useful patterns. It's no longer available for sale, but the IOLI lending library has a copy you can look at.

She is also the tatting editor of a wonderfully informative forum
