Japan - Sewing Stuffs 4

As I have needle related hobbies other than sewing, I purchased several needlework books.  The are (clockwise from the upper left corner):
Bird Embroidery (no English on this book), Applique (again, no English), Oya Lace ( also known as Turkish or Albanian Needle Lace and again, no English), El Nanduti del Paraguay, and Dorset Button weaving (and again, no English)

Detail from the Bird Embroidery book:

I felt the line drawings would make good embroidery patterns.

I missed taking pictures of three other books - one on sewing, two on needlework.  Those will be done in a future post.
