By "Upright Stitches' Mira means Bargello stitches. There are so few Bargello books out there that I buy the few I can find.
The subtitle for this book is: Exciting Needlework Projects, Patterns and Designs anyone can make.
This small book is full of Bargello Needlepoint patterns, from the basic to the complex. The pictures are mostly B and W, but in very close-up. it is easy to see how these patterns were made and the directions are clear and followable (is that a word?).
There are just a few color pictures.
THe Guide to Upright Stitches was published by David McKay Company in NY. I do not have a puiblication date but the material was copyrighted by Mira Silverstein in 1977. It has 126 pages
Usually this book arrives in terrible condition, often unsalable. This copy's condition is very good. I am surprised. The cover & pages are yellowed by age but that's it. The spine is tight and all is good.
