Beryl Dean, the leading exponent of modern ecclesiastical stitched textiles, has now compiled an illustrated study for those wishing to know more about all elements of Church embroidery and design. Combining full-color photographs both of her own superb work and that of over sixty of the world's leading designers, she covers every aspect of ecclesiastical design: from considerations of historical background, general design, and the use of color, signs and symbols, to the specific subjects of liturgical vestments and furnishings. With over 120 colorful examples, ranging from humble kneelers, frontals, falls and banners, to magnificent vestments and church furnishings, many of which are illustrated in situ, this book will provide a treasury of information, inspirations and ideas.
