Quoting (and possibly paraphrasing) from the back cover:
"Few Artists have produced as lasting an impat upon the course of American Needlework Design as Anne Champe orr. Between 1910 and 1945 Mrs. Orr created nearly 100 books of designs for needleworkers-books that combined artistic excellence with a through understanding of a needlworker's needs and goals."
This collection is published in cooperation with The Center for The History of American Needlwork. They are reproduced exactly as they appeared in her original books.
The charts are very good, they are certainly early to mid-century 20th century design. There are some fine alphabets, some sampler design with sayings and slogan and Mrs Orr's famous Peacock design in full-color.
