Characterized by the superb draughtmanship of its patterns and prickings, this book is the result of three years' study and research and brings together 101 of the best and most beautiful torchon lace patterns. After an explanation of the colour-diagram method, which eliminates lengthy technical descriptions, the projects are presented on facing double pages, each spread showing an overall pattern diagram, pattern detail and one or more close-up photographs for each piece. Included is a selection of patterns for working edgings, insertions, corners, bookmarks and medallions, aimed at a wide range of readership from beginners to experienced lacemakers.About the Author:
