This book is a hit. I have sold so many of them I have lost count (of course, I could go look at my purchase receipts but that would be too easy).
This is the first book of what promises to be an excellent Series of Needlepoint Books. This book covers Circles, Squares, Triangles, Rectangles.
According to the author, Ms Arthur, the book is divided into 4 sections, one for each shape covered.
Shes goes on to say "the purpose of Shapes for Needlepoint Series 1 is to catalog stitches appropriate for an available space on the needlepoint canvas". Stitches to create the shapes you want or to fill in areas you have.
Many stitches have variations that completely change the look of the stitch. Squares can be turned to become diamonds etc.
The next books in the Series will be
Shapes for Needlepoint Series 2 Diamonds, Hearts, Octagons, Stars is due to be released on August 15, 2011.
There is no release date for Shapes for Needlepoint Series 3 Corners, Diagonals, Horizontals, Verticals yet.
This is a brand new self-published book, copyright 2010. As I said above it is a First Edition.
The book is nicely done. The paper covers, front & back are laminated, The spiral binding is largeer than usual and easy to maneuver.
The book has 99 pages however each page is only printed on one side. This is very common in self-published books. A well done and interesting book.
