SUMMARY- This is a lovely book with tons of gorgeous photography, well written articles, and a wide range of topics. I'm not familiar with Betty Suter, the woman who wrote the tatting article, but she gave good illustrations for her basic lesson and clear instructions. You also get some lovely examples of tatting. This isn't a pattern book, but it's a nice showcase of a wide variety of disciplines you might not otherwise run across. I love books like this for that reason. If I want to know more about a particular discipline, I can then go hunting for more specific books.
