"The charm of lace in portraits of royalty and nobility, the clergy and the bourgeoisie is still a source of amazement. Pieces of lace from the past evoke wonder and admiration. The artistic and technical skill of their makers was sublime. As a spider weaves its web, fairy hands magically interlaced sober threads into refined transparency. Lace captivates, entrances and amazes, and does this still. It provides a peaceful space in the hectic, technologically-led, stressed and unsure world of today. Now, more than ever, people seek ways to express themselves in refinement and sensuality. Lace is an immensely attractive medium for those who value beauty. Lace in jewellery, handbags, lingerie, evening and bridal wear, shoes, and in interiors - these historical uses have been given a new look. However, this contemporary textile art, surprising and fresh, includes autonomous objects without function, little pearls of refinement, whether with a message or humour or not. Lace can be a pinnacle of expression, a monumental object which raises issues or releases emotions. The techniques are preserved but also updated and cast into a contemporary form. This book shows that the magic lace still lives and entices." - Martine Bruggeman. AUTHOR: Martine Bruggeman has written numerous books on the history of lace, and has published 30 lace pattern books. She has curated exhibitions at the Lace Center in Bruges, where she also teaches.

'Twelve Year a Whore, fives times a Wife (whereof once to her own Brother), Twelve Year a Thief, Eight Year a Transported Felon in Virginia, at last grew Rich, liv'd Honest, and died a Penitent' So the title page of this extraordinary novel describes the career of the woman known as Moll Flanders, whose real name we never discover. And so, in a tour-de-force of writing by the businessman, political satirist, and spy Daniel Defoe, Moll tells her own story, a vivid and racy tale of a woman's experience in the seamy side of life in late seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century England and America. Born in Newgate prison, and seduced in the home of her adoptive family, she learns to live off her wits, defying the traditional depiction of women as helpless victims. First published in 1722, and one of the earliest novels in the English language, its account of opportunism, endurance, and survival speaks as strongly to us today as it did to its original readers. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
