The needlepoint design shown above is an adaptation of an early drawing by Picasso. it is highlighted by texture and I think it is wonderful.
This book is very hard to find in anything close to good condition. They all say "good condition" when you order them but what arrives is often awful.
I have finally managed to buy a good condition "good condition" copy of the New York Times Book of Needlepoint for Left Handers.
This is an amazing book. It is by Elaine Slater, the author of the excellent New York Times Book of Needlepoint (the book that pretty much taught me to needlepoint). It is a complete and comprehensive Needlepoint Book for Left-Handers.
A nice feature of this book (and the other, right hand one) is the graphs are all done in 3 or 4 colors. The 1 or 2 highlight colors used to show the stitches on the back and white graphs make them pop out. They are much easier to understand and follow.
The New York Times Book of Needlepoint for Left-Handers was published by Quadrangle/The New York Times Book Co. in 1974. It has 247 pages.
This book is one of very few books on needlepoint for left-handers out there.
This copy is in just good condition. There is no dust jacket, The hardbound covers are good as are the pages inside, although they are yellowed and somewhat discolored by age.
The rarity of this book makes it's condition acceptable.
