The author combines her life-long interest in photography with her long-time fascination with lace to make a record of exquisite pieces of needle and bobbin lace in private collections and in the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter.
The pieces are presented in chronological order, from the 17th century to the 'present day' (1985).
The fine detail of the 177 photographs allow close study of each lace and its characteristic form. Most lacemakers will find it stimulating and inspirational and it will be of particular interest to those who wish to study lace as an art form
In immaculate condition except for minor abrasions and edge bumps to dust jacket and some fading to jacket spine. Price clipped.
