The author of this interesting book is Lizbeth Perrone. She is also the author of several other Needlepoint and Bargello Needlepoint books. The title and the topic of this book struck me as being unusual.
The inside cover (on another copy which has a cover) says this books is for "Needlepointers who want to stitch a true work of art" The book contains 11 American , they call them masterpieces ( that is something I prefer to judge for myself) of American Primitive Painting.
The book as the complete pictures of the paintings, the author has adapted and charted them for needlepoint. The charts appear to be well done, if a bit odd done in a book page format.
There is a full color picture of each design. The designs include Tinkle, a Cat, from the cover, The Birth Certificate of Anna Titus, The American War Horse, Cat in a Window, Chilly Observation and Peaceable Kingdom.
American Primitives in Needlepoint does not have it's dust jacket. Otherwise the book is in Very Good condition, almost like new.
I think this is an interesting and unusual book.
