Lace : A History, Hardback Book
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


This work covers the period from the early-16th century to World War I and is arranged chronologically to accommodate the underlying changes in fashionable dress and the lace worn with it.

Within each chapter, the different types of lace are dealt with one by one.

The distinguishing technical features of each lace are described and particular attention is given to the close copies of historical lace which were made in the late-19th century.

Review by

My fellow lacemakers and I refer to this as the "goddess" lace book. This is the absolute best historical lace reference ever written.
