90 year old beauties

I absolutely adore this collection
of thread crochet booklets from 1917-19.
I just wish my fingers were nimble enough
to actual create some of these works of art.

Here are two photos from each publication,
the cover and one interior page.
Click on the images to see more details and
if you interested, I put many more
up in a set on Flickr.


















Earlier this week I listed them as a lot on Etsy.
I hope someone out there has an appreciation for them,
either to follow the instructions for creating garments
and housewares or to use the images in their own artwork.
