As many of you already know I am a fan and promoter of the excellent Needlepoint books by June McKnight. Even if I could not sell them here on NewNeedlepoint I would still recommend them.
June has a new book out. The name, Colorful Backgrounds, says it all. The book is full of interesting and creative background stitches in glorious color.
Each stitch has 2 pages, on the left is a color photograph of the stitch, stitched (how else could I have said that?). The right side is the graph, also in color.
The book tells you what thread and what exact colors have been used to create each background design. That is something I have no seen in a background stitch book before.
The book is self-published by June McKnight with a 2013 copyright. It is her usual small ( 5.5 X 4 inches) size with a metal spiral binding.
I love spiral bindings, the book lays flat all by itself. I know that it a small feature but it is things like that that make the whole so good. (I know, I am losing it here)(.
Colorful Backgrounds has 190 pages and is printed on heavy card stock paper.
