This book is the Dutch version of "Embroidery Motifs from old Dutch Samplers" with an added bonus. There is a complete sampler pattern included at the end of this volume. The pattern is for the last sampler pictured on the picture page. Motifs for old Dutch samplers drew their inspiration from stories and symbols whose origins and meanings lie much earlier than the period in which the craft flourished. Albarta Meulenbelt-Nieuwburg explains the significance of the flowers, animals and Biblical characters that animate each design and gives over 700 color-coded cross-stitch patterns for reworking the old motifs. Included are 8 color plates of the samplers themselves.
