Needlelace in Photographs

Needlelace in Photographs


- +

by Cynthia Voysey

The author combines her life-long interest in photography with her long-time fascination with lace to make a record of exquisite pieces of non-bobbin lace in private collections and in the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter.

The pieces are presented in chronological order, from the 17th century to the 'present day' (1987).

The fine detail of the 182 photographs allow close study of each lace and its characteristic form. Many lacemakers will find it stimulating and inspirational and it will be of particular interest to those who wish to study lace as an art form

In very good condition with slightly damaged protective over-cover. Previous owner's name, etc written on front endpaper.
