SUMMARY- You get a very nice assortment of patterns with black-and-white photography except for the centerfold and the cover, where you have full-color photos of the Khandallah Luncheon set. The centerfold is amazing looking. Ms. Willis loved giving her patterns colorful names from her native New Zealand. I really love this series of books, and wish I could find the fourth issue to complete my set. I do have the first three original editions, and they're on my list to scan and provide PDFs of, as Sarah Bradberry has so generously done with this one(Thank you, Sarah!) If you find any of this series, I recommend grabbing it - they're a treasure.

Sarah Bradberry offers a free pdf download of this edition on her website(thank you!) along with a nice review:
