"Having had a life-long interest in photography and for the last eighteen years in lace, it was natural Cynthia Vorsey should wish to record those exquisite pieces of needle and bobbin lace she had seen in private collections and at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter. Here she presents the best of bobbin laces from the seventeenth century to the present day. Each piece of lace featured is named and dated; they are in chronological order. The fine detailed photographs allow for a close study of each lace and its characteristic form. Lacemakers of all ages and skills will find this to be a stimulating and inspirational book . . .
