5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Embroidered samplers from the V&A's fine collection provide both a historical survey of this popular needlework art and a practical guide to the different types of stitches.

This popular book, now with a new cover, shows details of individual motifs alongside full color photographs of complete samplers.

Stitch types and techniques are explained with photographic details and clear line drawings.

It is international in scope, illustrating British, Continental and non-European samplers, and covers a wide range of stitch types, providing both practical information and inspiration for designers and embroiderers.
