SUMMARY- The first 84 pages is a tutorial on netting. The next 107 pages is on basic tatting and adding beads to that, and the rest of the book is crochet motifs then what looks like kumihimo to me. It is a hardcover book, but the interior pages are cheap newsprint. I suspect it will not age well. Diagrams are provided with the tatting patterns - nothing too sophisticated. There are illustrations and sample photos throughout, but the dark paper makes it hard to see details. I bought this and another Russian tatting book from a book dealer in Germany. I found it only mildly interesting, despite the eclectic mix of disciplines. This one wasn't to my tastes, but your mileage, of course, may vary.
