the art of embroidery


I bought this book in London last year and had forgotten about it. It is one the most inspriational books I have in my collection - not a technique book but more of an art book. Just to trigger the brain - quite organic really. Most of us don't need technique books - just lots of inspiration for when we have our dead days.

It's a great book isn't it Dale. There is also another one by the same author, same format, called the Art of Knitting. No real patterns, great inspiration. It has pics of textural "things" and then interprets that into a sample of knitting.

I too have this book. As soon as I picked it up I knew that I had to have it. Some great ideas for textures.
