Il Reticello is the third book written by Giuliana Buonpadre. This volume is dedicated solely to traditional reticello, an Italian needlelace that employs drawn thread techniques, cutwork, needlelace fillings, and other embellishments.

This is a great book for those who want to delve into reticello. You will learn how to prep your fabric, what supplies to use, and, through clear diagrams and photos, you will discover a wide array of reticello fillings and techniques.

The book is written in Italian, English, and French. It is one of the foremost books on reticello available today.

Il Reticello serves as an excellent foundation for Giuliana's subsequent books on reticello and similar techniques.
