The fourth and final book in a series covering aspects of 16th and 17th Century lace.
The author begins with brief sections on equipment and materials, suggesting modern equivalents of the original and on the techniques used for working typical insertions and borders - often used to form cuffs - in this period.
She then continues by describing in detail, aspects of lace of this type, surviving in collections and seen in lace in portraits from the era. These are redrafted for the modern lacemaker with copious working notes.
Excellent colour photographs, prickings, detailed instructions, and many clear line drawings and diagrams are provided throughout.
