Lace Types A HISTORICAL GUIDE TO EUROPEAN LACES

Introduction

The Author

JEAN LEADER, the author of Lace Types, has studied, written and produced commercial videos about lace since the 1990s. She has her own website — www.jeanleader.net — where you can find further information about her lace interests and activities.

Lace Types contains some material that was originally written for the The Lace Guild, and many of the illustrations here are of items in the Guild’s collection. However, copyright of both text and photographs belongs to the author. If you wish to reproduce part of this material in any form you must apply for permission.

Do also e-mail the author with queries or to suggest any corrections or additions that you think may be necessary.

Lace, the iPhone app
This app addresses the same topic as Lace Types, but is organized differently — by individual lace style or ground, rather historically or geographically. It is available from the Apple App Store, where there is a video preview. It was produced with her husband, David.

Lace Identification, A Practical Guide
The focus of this book, written with Gil Dye, is on the lace of the 19th and 20th century — both machine-made as well as hand-made lace.
