Books > Lacemaking Books > Valenciennes - Fruher und Heute - Past & Present

by Ulrike Voelcker
  
Another major work from this popular author which is sure to please lacemakers who have an interest in Continental laces - paricularly Valenciennes..
.
The author opens with a section on the features of Valenciennes which explores and explains their historical development  and detail how they are worked using many diagrams and photographs to illustrate the text - which is in both German and English.

Then follows 20 beautiful patterns, ten reconstructed by the author from mainly 18th and 19th century laces and ten new designs by the author herself. These spendid designs include edgings and floral motifs.
 
Very clear patterns and photographs throughout.
