Selena:  work the bookmark at whatever scale is comfortable and pleasing to you.  Look at the section of the TUTORIAL under SUPPLIES, where I discuss different pattern sizes and thread sizes to go with them.  Needle lace does not require an exact match of pattern size and thread size, you merely adjust the number of stitches per row.  My suggestions are just "ball park".

I don't know where you can get the Puncetto Valesiano book. I got mine while the company mentioned still was open.

Try different craft bookshops. the Italian bookshop that Linda mentioned might have it, - Tromboli...

Sorry I can't be of more help

I do not understand your question to puncetto

Yes, I made it in 1980. It took me three weeks. I'm the only American every to have studied at the Atelier National du Point d'Alençon.  It is 1.25" tall and has 5 different weights of thread in it, ranging up to #320.  It was worked with a size 12 needle. It is considered a real piece of Point d'Alençon, I have an official certificate signed by Mme Marguerite, Soeur Marie du Sacre Cour, the head of the Atelier at the time.

After 32 years I finally taught a week long course in Alençon at the 2012 IOLI convention. First time anyone every trained at Alençon has taught in the US.

Yes, that is what we want -- your laces that you have made.

It occurs to me that there is another possibility.  You could start a pinterest account and post your photos there.  Then give us a link to your PINTEREST RETICELLA board.  Pinterest pins automatically include a link to the source website.  Most website owners will find that sufficient.  And the photos from books -- that is between pinterest and your conscience.

We can't post photos from books or other websites.  It is a copyright violation.  If it is a website, post a link.  If it is a book, you can only post a photo if the copyright has expired (which means 1925 approx, or earlier).  Please correct this, and the videos you posted must also come down.  You could post a comment on the PUNCETTO group and list the urls of all the videos you have found most helpful.    I realize that you are trying to be helpful, and that you are excited about finding kindred spirits, but respecting copyright is NECESSARY.  If we fail to do that NING, our host, can shut our entire network down.   

Please read this NOTE:

Selena: Did you look at the opening page of our PUNCETTO group?  Look under SOURCES OF INFORMATION for a series of videos-- an online tutorial-- by Avital, one of our members.  She breaks the process down into steps.  Her videos are very good.

Welcome.  Please read all the NOTES.  They explain our policies, the laces we include, and how the software works.  Join any groups that interest you.  Is it possible that you mean PUNCETTO?  It is an Italian knotted needle lace with geometric designs.  If you have any questions about the site, contact me and I'll try to help.
