The back cover calls this book "the most sumptuous, beautiful book of needlepoint designs ever". I might argue with "most" and "ever" but this is indeed a gorgeous book. Plus this copy is in amazing , perfect condition.
If I did not know that this was not being published anymore, I would think it was a new book.
The pictures are all full color, even the graphs. The designs are lovely and as always, Elizabeth Bradley's skills as a needleworker and a teacher shine out.
Decorative Victorian Needlepoint is bursting with pictures. The stitched projects are shown in wonderful tableaus of objects. The subject is Victorian Needlework but I would also classify the designs as Romantic Needlework or Traditional Needlework.
This is a large coffee table size hardcover book. It was published by Elizabeth Bradley Press in 1990. The original edition was published in 1990. I do not know when the paperbound edition was printed or if it has been up-dated.
Then again, how could you and why would you up-date a book about Victorian design?
Decorative Victorian Needlework is in Very Good condition. Very Good!
The pages inside are fine and the spine is tight.
All in all, a gorgeous book.
