Originally published in 1604, with the printing privilege of the Holy Roman Emperor, this patternbook contains 99 charted designs the modern needleworkers will find intricate and challenging. Richly detailed, with the look of medieval tapestries, these baroque designs will appeal to all people experienced in needlepoint, cross stitch embroidery or other needle crafts. Included are heraldic designs--shields, lions rampant, birds, gryphons, etc.; mythological figures; a peacock, unicorn, stag and more; flower motifs; two scenes of a richly dressed man and woman; and numerous geometric designs.
