The Modern Crochet Book

£9.99

Product description

Flora Klickmann was an editor of The Girl's Own Paper for many years, during that time she edited or wrote books on many subjects, including semi-autographical books, books on etiquette and advice for young women. This collection of patterns was first published in 1913 and comprises designs for trimming items as varied as underwear and table linens.
Designs include "A Swastica Design", at that time completely innocuous, it was not until around 1920 that the symbol was hijacked by the Nazi party. Swastika is a Sanskrit word which means “That which is good.” The symbol of Swastika is considered as sacred and represents luck and prosperity in Hinduism. Other designs include "Some Uncommon D'oileys" and "A Mountain Ash Design in Irish Crochet".
It is well illustrated with monochrome photographs of the finished trimmings to accompany the usual abbreviated instructions. Although the boards are soiled and worn on the edges and corners, with a 6cm split at the base of the spine, also a small hole on the upper front cover (under "THE" in the first image), the original cream with red print and motifs on the front, and advertisement for Fry's Cocoa on the back, remain clear.Apart from age toning to front and rear free end papers, also moderate toning to text block edges, all text is clear and patterns easy to follow (depending on your degree of skill).
There are clear b/w diagrams, charts and photographs, also several pages of advertisements, e.g. "Tenax Embroidery Silk", "Perry's Powders" and "Robinson's 'Patent' Groats".
