This book provides an overview of the art of embroidery and cloth ornamentation, from very early examples in the Middle Ages, including details from the Bayeux tapestry and altar cloths, the finest, most detailed embroidery on linen and silk from the 1500s, traditional embroidery from the 19th century, and embroidery in the Japanese style from the beginning of this century. The book also features a section with very clear drawings that illustrate how to embroider some traditional designs.
