This book took me by surprise. it was not what I expected it to be. Or it was what I expected and more. The subtitle is:
20 Glorious Projects For Beading On Canvas.
The back cover says the usual things.
"Clear informative instructions for each of the 20 projects"
"Full color stitch-by-stitch charts"
"Comprehensive reference section describing all the different techniques and materials involved"
Here's where it gets interesting
" Specially commissioned color photographs plus photographs of the original inspiration"
Ok, I need to look further into this book.
It begins with a 2 page section on Working with Beads, clearly this it not a beginners book. Then it goes right into the first project, a Tile Pattern Chair Seat. Like many books, it has compete directions, a materials list, a color picture of the completed project and a full color stitching chart.
Almost all the projects have what I can only call *atmosphere* pictures. For instance, the Patchwork Nightdress Case is based on an Amish design, there is a full page picture of an Amish father and son loading something into their buggy. (by the way, I live in an area where there are many Amish, they do use horse and buggy and many of the parking lots have a space to tie up the horses as well as park the cars).
Again, the Dickens Bookmark has several *atmosphere* photographs as well as some Dickens history.
And it goes on like this. Indeed, an interesting and unusual book. There is so much more here then just a book of projects to bead and stitch.
This wonderful book has recently been issued. I previously sold it here as an out-of-print book and like all of them, I took a picture of a page to show you the condition so...just look at the picture and ignore the condition. You will receive a brand new book.
The is a large Coffee Table size hard cover book. First published by Anaya Publishers Ltd in London in 1994. The book has 112 pages.
