Another interesting Needlepoint Book by talented needlepoint writer and teacher Maggie Lane. The Chinese Inspired Rugs shown and graphed in this book are all actually "rug size". They range from (in inches) 40X40, 23 X 49, 28 X 56, 30X70,
43X 60, 36X 59 and more.
There are 10 rug designs, they all have expanded graphs, clear directions and thread color lists. There are sections on everything else you need to know to stitch a needlepoint rug including finishing, which is different from regular needlepoint finishing.
Maggie Lane was raised in China, and you can see how she loves Chinese Art and design.
There are full color pictures of each of the rugs in the center of the book.
Chinese Rugs Designed for Needlepoint is a hardcover book.It was published by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1975. It has 100 pages.
The book is in very good condition. The only flaw I can see is there is some slight darkening of the inside cover pages in both the front and back of the book. It is 1/2 inch on both sides of the spine, which is also very good.
There was no dust jacket with this book. It hardly needs one.
