This book by prolific needlepoint author, Lisabeth Perrone is based on a years work at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. the designs are from Folk Art traditions in Europe, Asia, The Americas and Africa.
Each design has directions and easy to read charts using 3 or 4 colors, not just black and white and symbols showing the color placements. There are many color pictures throughout the book. All graphs and directions are easily adaptable to either needlepoint or cross-stitch. The designs are for a more experienced Stitcher. My bibliography gives this book a D (for experienced stitcher) rating
This is a large size hardcover book. Published by Random House in 1978. It has 96 pages.
Folk Art in Needlepoint is in very good condition. The dust jacket was a mess, all torn and awful so I tossed it.
The book inside is very good, clean covers and pages, tight spine. This is often the case, a good book in a bad dust jacket. I try to save them but sometimes there is no point.
