Christine Hawken’s collection of 121 Honiton grounds appeared in a ring-book version as early as 1997; at that time it did not receive much attention outside the British Isles. Now, some 4 years after the death of the author, the Devon Lace teachers have published a slightly revised version.

The more demanding forms of Honiton lace live, of course, from the great variety of fillings, of which a wide selection is shown here. Each of these fillings is shown with instructions for working, black and white working diagrams and a pin hole grid. Unfortunately, illustrations of the worked fillings and lace prickings are brought only sporadically and each in turn has to be hunted for laboriously. Here it would have been helpful if the numbers identifying the fillings had been used throughout the publication!

None-the-less, a MUST for Honiton lacemakers.
