I snagged a copy of this for myself. Long & Short Embroidery is absolutely beautiful (as is L & S Needlepoint). It is used in Glorafilia designs and is is widely mentioned but there are scant or non complete directions for how to do it right.
The subtitle to Long & Short Embroidery is" A Collection of Flowers".
Each project or example (there are too many to do them all) has a close up stitched picture of the flower or flowers. Then a template drawing. The thread Key is done using DMC & Anchor Stranded Cottons
The direction that follow are precise and very detailed using 2-3 more pages.
This technique and these directions would be very useful for Needlepointers as well.
This new book is part of the Milner Craft Series. Published by Sally Milner Publishing in Binda, Australia. This is the 3 rd re-print.
