The subjects of its chapters range from the splendours of embroidery in metal threads to the exquisite delicacy of whitework, from bed hangings and ornamental pillows to bead pures and purled book covers. Pictorial embroideries alone reach from the thirteenth century opus Anglicanum to the nineteenth century Berlin wool cross-stitch; furniture embroideries from Tudor table 'carpets' through a wealth of chair cover, screens, cabinets; costume embroidery from petticoats and 'night caps' to pockets and stomachers. Techniques and stitches are explained, such as the intentions and effects of quilting for example, or patchwork, or tent stitch, the author seeking always to appreciate the purpose behind the embroiderer's choice of material and method'. This fantastic editions comes illustrated throughout in 4 full-colour plates, 48 black and white plates and line drawings - gem among a bounty of out of print, rare and stunning vintage books on our second hand bookstore.
