The text pages are clean and bright. "Actually, it is four-books-in-one: [1] Children's Fancy Work, [2] The Lady's Lace Book, [3] Ornamental Needlework, and [4] Macrame Lace. With one of the biggest building booms of today taking place in the doll house business, many will like the first part, with its needlework for children, their dolls and doll houses. But the book is mostly about needlework for interiors, and that is the chief reason for reprinting it."
