SUMMARY- All photos in the book are in color. The entire book is geared to teach the basics to a beginner. She goes into good detail and breaks things down well - I think I could have learned to tat from this book much easier than the books I actually learned from. Her photos are still not as clear and sharp as I'd like, but you can pick out enough detail with some squinting and study and the addition of color helps. This is not a complete lesson plan like her first book, but an excerpted section updated and color added. I like this book and think it would be useful to someone trying to learn tatting for the first time. I finally came across the rest of the series of five lesson books - and it was really costly at about $30 a book. This is probably too high a price point for most beginner tatters.
