Lace in Selvedge magazine

The current issue of Selvedge magazine (May/June) is a bit of a lace themed issue. I have a piece in there on the cut works of Piper Shepard, which is mainly a review of the recent exhibition but also describes her working technique and is illustrated by an image of her Granulated diamond hanging. There is also an article by Annabel Talbot of the Bowes Museum about the development of lace for fashion in the 17th century, which is beautifully illustrated with some Flemish lace. Finally, there is also an article about the work of Iris van Herpen, which although it is not traditional lace is very lace-like in its effect. Worth having a look at if you can find a copy.
