"A handsome and thoroughly fascinating book ... heartily recommended." — Library Journal
One of the most venerable crafts of the past, lacemaking still enjoys great popularity among needleworkers, for unlike anything else made by hand, lace is a "unique aesthetic creation." This comprehensive book by a skilled designer and internationally acknowledged authority on the subject covers all facets of lace and lacemaking. Written with charm and enthusiasm, the work covers the history of lace; explains how various types of lace were named; the uses of lace in design and decoration, on ecclesiastical garments and bridal gowns, and as personal adornment.
Readers will also find detailed examination of lace collecting and the techniques of making, mending, cleaning, and caring for lace, while more than 100 large photographs offer splendid examples of Honiton, Flemish Pillow Lace, Irish Needlerun Tambour Lace, Brussels Rose Point, Point D'Angleterre, Hapsburg Lace, Point d'Alençon, Point de Venise, Reticello, Punto in Aria, and other important laces.
An invaluable Key of Lace describes scores of lace types, with information on date of origin and designs. Also included are complete instructions and drawings for making pillow lace and needlepoint lace.
