Towner Whitney is the unreliable narrator of Brunonia Barry's 'The Lace Reader.' 'The Lace Reader' is a novel set in Salem, Massachusetts whose main character has psychic abilities to read fortune's in patterns of Ipswich lace. The novel is richly steeped in the folklore and tradition of old world, hand done, lace making. Upon 'The Lace Reader's' publishing success, modern witches in Salem have adopted this as a method of fortune telling.
In 'Fortune-Telling Book for Brides' by K.C. Jones, a Bride who wears a veil is described as having 'a mysterious way about her, but she also holds tradition dear. Her home and family will be of paramount importance to her.'
To date we have made two veils and a bridal belt in the above pictured lace. Chelsea Fausel of Fausel Imagery and Mariah Rose Dahl captured the mysterious allure of a lady veiled, dressed as a Bride.
