German text. Translated "Upper Hessian Embroidery from Days Gone By", this book is a pictorial representation of old embroidery from the country on the Lahn River between Giessen and Wetzlar. These rural embroideries have not before been published in literature nor in picture form. The special feature of this publication is that, because the embroideries are mainly held in private ownership, the names and historical details of the many women who created them are known and presented here. Finally, the important role of Hessian linen production is documented from flax processing to the finished canvas.
