Some books are hard to find, and may not be necessary to own. And I don't mean bootleg books, I mean legit archival copies from reputable repositories, out of copyright, etc.On Instagram today someone photographed their book collection, and it started a discussion about one that some of us wanted to see. It turns out, it is available in full here:A history of hand-made lace : Dealing with the origin of lace, the growth of the great lace centres, the mode of manufacture, the methods of…See More

"Yes I know it, because in Bayeux, when you learn, we have few pieces with it. But I've never seen it in an old lace....Here you have one of the exercices we have in the Bayeux Lace traning"

"The black lace is chantilly with a very surprising edge with Paris point.... Never see that. Anyway it's the first period of Chantilly and I know more 19 century Chantilly.What surprised me in this image is the blonde we can see above the…"
