Another lace book

Here is my latest. You can drool, but don’t covet, it’s already found a home. It’s going to France, where all the cabinet cards come from.

I just discovered that it’s not that easy to photograph lace, because it doesn’t have much contrast.

When I started this book, I worried it wouldn’t be ‘thick enough’. I had 3 signatures of 4 double pages each. They look like nothing on my studio table. But after a week of painting and filling up with lace, I had to remove one of the signatures, because the book was becoming really outrageous. It’s still 3 inches thick, and full of lusciousness.

You be the judge!



  1. Absolutely gorgeous!!! What a fabulous idea and I can see how much love and time you put into this lovely work of art..Wish it was coming to me..LOL

  2. Hello Sox,

    I think I'm going to dig out all my lace and send it to you to make me such a book !! It's a great idea to use all that lace that is so precious but now tucked away in drawers, to use it and give it a display thanks to this book !

    The reciever has a precious treasure in her hand !

    greetings from belgium

  3. Sox, your work with fabric and lace truly inspires me. After receiving your "inspiration card" I have been looking for fabrics and images to try my own version. (I used yours as a journal book cover.) I have all my materials and I'm ready to get started. Thanks so much.
