In this book Beryl Dean addresses the widely acknowledged need for a vigorous approach to ecclesiastical embroidery with a lively text crammed full of ideas, yet leaving room for thought. Technical information on both Roman Catholic and Church of England usage supplements a wealth of practical detail. A brief historical survey and an explanation of symbolism precede chapters on goldwork, applique, laidwork, whitework and canvaswork. The volume is completed by sections on figure subjects, lettering, heraldry, ceremonial embroidery and the making up and moulting of pieces.
