The New York Times Book of Needlepoint is one of the classic and I think important basic Needlepoint books. This is the book I learned to do Needlepoint from. it is set up to be easy to use and easy to understand. This book was published by Quadrangle/The New York Times Book Co. on 1973.

There are many color pictures in this book and the stitch graphs are done in 2 or 3 colors as well as black & white, which makes them much easier to understand and follow.
This is a large book, it has 247 pages. it is set up in lessons, there are 8 of them. Each lesson features a different stitch. Then there is a basics chapter and 2 more chapters with more ideas and interesting info.
This copy does not have a dust jacket. Otherwise it is in Very Good condition. I will update my picture (soon, I hope).
The pages inside are slightly yellowed by age.
