Many books use the word "Masterpieces" in their titles, few deserve it. Some do however and this is one of them. This is a collection of excellent needleworks from the Winterthur Musuem. This museum is in Delaware and has the world's finest collection of decorative artefacts (copied that phrase from the dust jacket, love those words).
The museum specializes in things made or used between 1640 and 1860 in what is now the United States of America.
There are 30 needlepoint projects in this fine book including one Bargello Needlepoint. The back of the book has an assortment of Christmas Themed designs.
All the pictures in this book are full color, the graphs are all full color as well. Each design has some background information and stitching instructions as well as a thread color guide with amounts needed.
These are absolutely beautiful designs in a very beautiful book. Check out the fruits beginning on page 86 or the incredible *lunch box size* needlepoint purse beginning on page 58.
Needlework Masterpieces from Winterthur is a large size glossy cover paperbound book. it was published by David and Charles in England in 2001. it has 127 pages. I listed it a wile ago and it sold right away, I have not re-listed it until now, no idea why I delayed.
Needlework Masterpieces from Winterthur is in excellent condition. The paper cover is fairly scratched from wear but there are no tears or bends. The book inside is like new.
