Tapisserie is another gorgeous book by Hayat Palumbo. I had never heard of it or even heard it mentioned of referred to when her other book, A Passion for Needlepoint, is spoken of.
This is not a book of patterns you can follow, with charts and directions. What it is is gorgeous needlepoint and tapestry work. Ideas and inspiration.
The book is divided into chapters:
Emblems and Novelties
Counted Stitch Designs
Each page is bursting (yes, that is the right word) with full color photos of these extraordinary needlepoint. They are mostly shown in room settings. The whole, the style and the effect is spectacular and spectacular is not a word I use lightly.
There is a Scattered Roses all over needlepoint arm chair here I adore. There are examples of needlepoint on antique chairs and a picture of "The Countess at her Tapestry Frame" (not kidding, she is wearing a mini skirt and she is maybe too old for it)
A large coffee table size book, hard bound with 158 pages. Tapisserie was first published in 1991 by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in London.
This copy of Tapisserie is in Very Good condition. There is some edge wear to the dust jacket, otherwise the book is, again, Very Good.
