50 New Bobbin Lace Patterns

50 New Bobbin Lace Patterns by Claire Burkhard
A Batsford Book, published 1993, last republished 2000
ISBN 0 7134 6985 4

My copy is hardcover, 160 pages, in 3 languages (English, German and French), and all in black and white.

Full of fascinating projects, with the prickings fully drawn and making good working diagrams.  Some of her stuff needs a bit of thinking about, but it all seems to fall into place as you do it.  Mats, edges, motifs, a fan, collars and dress trims, all sorts of great ideas.

A recommended book for anyone’s lace library
