PILLOW LACE is a thorough and graduated course in the simpler types of English and foreign lace, including Russian, Torchon, Cluny, plaited lace, and Saxony Guipure. Concise instructions and clear, detailed working diagrams are supplemented by samples of the finished lace.

The book is an established classic in its field. It was published originally in 1907 to meet an earlier revival of interest in hand~made lace, when written material on the subject was much scarcer than today.
