From the co-author of two previous Batsford lace titles comes a collection of 50 stunning lace patterns that showcase the delicate beauty of this ever-popular lace. Traditionally, the ornate braids that make up Milanese lace were used in long, convoluted floral patterns, but they are also easily adapted for use in more modern designs. This new book of patterns contains both traditional and modern examples, and the author experiments with different decorative styles - for example, Celtic lettering that is vibrant with the colours of original Celtic art, taken into a new dimension with the addition of Milanese braids. Exquisite miniatures in a Japanese style will be a challenge even for the most experienced lacemaker: the smallest patterns are not necessarily the easiest! Other patterns include flowers, scrolls, leaves and butterflies, plus some more unusual designs: dragons, a picture depicting the legend of Arion and the dolphin, and a spectacular piece featuring the mythical seven-headed Hydra. There is a good range of patterns, including both prickings and photographs of the finished pieces, suitable for abilities ranging from beginner to advanced.About the Author:
