Old Italian Patterns for Linen Embroidery contains all of the pictorial material from Frieda Lipperheide's Muster altitalienischer Leinenstickerei, originally published by Franz Lipperheide, Berlin, 1892. Beginning with a survey of the provenance of the patterns, the patterns are presented followed by materials, the execution of patterns in various stitch techniques, edgings and insertions, bindings for single sections of fabric or embroidery and double-faced fringe. This folio contains eighty-five patterns on thirty plates. The patterns themselves are suitable for stitching in Assisi, blackwork, cross stitch and satin stitch to name a few! A wonderful reference and collection!
