It is doubtful whether any other craft has been practiced in this country with more success than needlework, a branch of English art which in many periods has been supreme in Europe. Mr. Kendrick writes with the authority of long experience and an unrivaled knowledge of his subject. His critical survey ranges from Anglo-Saxon times to the present day, discusses the development of method and taste and describes notable pieces from such early surviving work as the stole and maniple found in the tomb of St. Cuthbert at Durham and the world-famous Bayeux tapestry to the outstanding examples of recent times.
