Nobels bankrupted themselves in pursuit of it. Convent girls spent 60 hours just to make a square inch of it. The Victorians revived it, and today, Hart and Calvert, in this richly informative treatise, celebrate the enchanted fabric--from its beginnings as crude open cutwork in the 14th century to the laces of today and how to use and care for them. Full-color illustrations throughout.
