This book combines a marvelously readable history and analysis of needlepoint geometry, design and texture from Babylonian times to nineteenth-century America. The 351 impeccable diagrams show every possible variation of stitch construction, extant and extinct, accompanied by photographs of worked samples. There are over 150 photographs of historical sources and worked samples as well as 25 full-color photographs of in-process and completed works of needlepoint.
