Content goes with Netting - Most Ancient Lace, same date
For Netting research and instruction, there are chapters in books devoted
to Netting, but fully-dedicated-to-the-subject books may be hard to find.
IOLI (U.S. Lace Guild) has some, listed with their Needle Lace books:
N-065 Art of Netting from the Kliots - 112 p. reprint
N-084 Beautiful Netting, by Rita Bartholomew - 66 p. for her classes
N-057 Harper's Bazar (sic) Netting Patterns - 26 p. articles/patterns
N-034 Knotting & Netting, by Lisa Melen - 88 p. hardback
N-082 Make Nets, Here's How, by H.T. Ludgate - 72 p.
N-066 Priscilla Netting Book - 40 p.
At the Caen OIDFA Congress, a German book dealer offered "Knotting and
Netting - The Art of Filet Work - Designs, Materials, Techniques", originally
published in Sweden in 1971, and re-published in the U.S. by Van Nostrand
Reinhold in 1972. Library of Congress # 72-1857 and ISBN # 0-442-29958-3.
I looked at the Netting section, illustrated with pictures, before buying.
It would be worthwhile to try to borrow from InterLibrary Loan.
Netting Artist Stephanie Crossman, Vinalhaven, Maine (one of the larger
islands off the Maine coast) told me about a newer Netting book written on
the island, "Nets Through Time - The Technique and Art of Knotted Netting",
by Jacqueline Davidson, Maine Authors Publishing, 2012, 155 p. softcover,
ISBN 978-1-936447-34-3. (I ordered direct from Davidson.) Contents:
Technique, Tools, Early History, Nets for Utility, Lace (50 p.), Nets for
Ceremonies & Celebrations, Contemporary Fiber Art.
If you tour New England historic homes, sometimes you will come across a
Netted bed canopy (for Summer use). They were, of course, a luxury!
