Lace Here Now is an excellent book divided into the three title parts. 'Lace' offers an insightful over-view of the history of Nottingham lace including an excellent photo essay by Joy Buttress and Matt Gill. 'Here' looks at the rich heritage of lace held in the Nottingham Museums and Galleries collections and at the Nottingham Trent University lace archive. 'Now' brings lace firmly into the 21st century where it is shown to have a taken on a vibrant new life in the hands of artists and designers who see it as far more than a mere fashion statement.
A must read book for anyone interested in lace, its history or its future
