Pictorial Archive of Lace Designs - 325 Historic Examples
A magnificent collection of over 300 lace designs contains a rich selection of the finest handiwork of skilled needleworkers over the past 400 years. More than 250 detailed illustrators and photographs, taken from diverse sources (German, Italian, French, English, Swedish) reveal elegant borders and edgings, collars, medallions, doilies and other exquisite samples of the lacemakers art. Delicate designs depict mythical figures, elaborate hearts, flowers and whimsical figures, beautiful floral and foliate motifs and much more. Selected from rare antique sources, these lovely samples not only reveal the superb craftsmanship and artistry of scores of unknown lacemakers, they document the skills of artists who long ago laboured to produce meticulous copies of these designs for now-rare publications.
