Lacy Crochet. Kyuuto!

I've long been a fan of design from Japan. Lacy Crochet is a new DIY crochet book from Chronicle's brand new Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts line. Lacy Crochet includes 22 crafty crocheting patterns for home accessories, as well as wardrobe accoutrement. The book was hugely popular in Japan, and is full of authentic Japanese content with the ease of English instruction, quirky color photographs, step-by-step directions, and helpful technical illustrations. A bit of translation: Kyuuto! = Cute!

For more great Japanese books check out the Kinokuniya book shop in Japantown.
