I had not seen this Elizabeth Bradley book, I had no idea it existed. I was surprised to find it had been first published in The USA in 1996.
This edition was re-copyrighted and re-issued in 2008. I am amazed no one knows about it.
This handsome coffee table size hardcover book by Master Needleworker Elizabeth (my title for her, not hers) has 25 Original charted Designs.
Each design is shown painted as a picture, in a full color graph and as a finished stitched piece.
Many of the animal designs have complex backgrounds or settings. They are just wonderful designs. Projects included are:
ANIMAL ATLAS CARPET
ANIMALS OF THE AIR
ANIMALS FOUND IN WATER
sperm whale bath mat
mackerel glasses case
ANIMALS ON LAND
fox family rug
carpet python draft stopper
ivy leaf border
ANIMALS & MAN
each letter of the alphabet has it's own charted letter & animal design.
This may be a unique book, I know there are animal stitchery books out there but none as fine as this, with this level of excellent designs (I want to stitch the pig pillow & the chickens).
This brand new book was published in 2008 by Trafalgar Square Publishing in North Pomfret, Vermont. This is a large glossy hardcover book with 168 pages.
