‘Insertions and Borders’ is the fourth in a series of books on different aspects of sixteenth and seventeenth century bobbin lace, each providing historical context, illustrations of original lace and worked samples, together with patterns and working diagrams. It describes decorative insertions as used to link widths of linen for clothing or bed-linen, and wide borders for collars and ruffs.
