1. Japanese Needle Tatting
You will need patience to master this needle tatting technique. Unlike shuttle tatting and traditional needle tatting, the tool does not hold a supply of thread with which to work. Instead, Japanese needle tatting functions more like crochet in that it draws continually from the ball of thread.
2. Art Tatting Jewelry Lyn Morton
A new book is from well known designer and long time tatter, Lyn Morton of the UK. It is "The Art of Tatting Jewelry, Exquisite Lace and Bead Designs." Lyn's book is 110 pages.
3. Il Lavoro Chiacchierino Series
Here's an update on this long-running series of tatting books produced by Mani di Fata is a treasure trove of traditional tatting patterns.
4. Motif Bocher 1912 Tatting Book
Bocher 1912 Tatting Book. Among the many patterns for which members of the Online Tatting Class rewrote methods in 2009 and prepared samples, several are still available in the class files. This particular pattern inspired both earrings by Sue MacLeod and a bracelet, too.
5. Oval Shuttle motif
Norma Benporath (1900 - 1998) designed lovely tatting patterns which were published by SEMCO in the pre- and during the WWII years. This pattern caught my attention because of its oval shuttle-like shape. It is from the Home Beautiful Tatting Book #4

Bicolor rings using needle tatting and two different colored threads wrapped alternately.
