THE ROMANCE of LACE. The charm of lace has been acknowledged throughout the ages. A knowledge of the art and the romance attached to its historical evolution serves to emphasize and accentuate the worth of this delightful fabric. This book presents the history, evolution and development of lace fabrics in many countries in Europe. This book serves as a good starting point for all those who care to persue the enchanting study of lace-craft in all its many facets. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions using the original text and artwork.
