There are so many things I love about this book. I love the unique idea, the forms and colors used and the author's name "Gigs". On the back over is her picture, she is a good looking blonde. I imagined "Gigs" would have been more unusual looking but you never know, do you?
This book was published by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1977. I think it may be unique in it's subject. I think it is terrific. Since I first found it and began to sell copiues here it has become increasingly rare and hard to find in decent condition.
The book has many B and W drawings and a number of color pictures, what it does not have is many graphs. The designs really are free form, even when they incorporate a figure of some sort. I think the concept and the execution of these designs is amazing.
Even after thumbing through this book again, (I have a copy of this on my own bookshelves) I find myself wishing I had some time to stitch one of these for myself.
I have this book in stock in both hardcover and paperbound editions. The book is exactly the same, just the binding is different. I will send you the best condition copy I have in stock. It may be hardcover or it may be paperbound but it will the best one I have at the time of your order.

I have a dilemma here, Free-Form Bargello is still available, but fiding a copy in decent condition is getting much harder. The paperbound copies are in not so great shape. The problem seems to be the glued spines, they are not holding well. None of the copies I have are actually loose or loosing pages but there is a visible gap when you oopen the book, you can see the glue line.
The funny part here is that this often means that the book was used and enjoyed, opened often. They are 41 years old so....
I have taped the front and back heavy paper covers to the inside pages the best I can but I suggest you handle them with care.
I have both the paperbound and the hard cover in stock. I will be refunding a $3.00 *rebate* to anyone who gets a paperbound copy.
You can request which and I will do my best but I have but I have to warn you, I have many more paperbound copies then hardbound ones. So, mostly it will be based on what I have
