This is an earlier Glorafilia book, published in 1991. The Venice Collection designs are more classic than some of the other books, more with "that feeling", if you know what I mean.
All of the Glorafiliia books are very beautiful. This book is full of gorgeous pictures of both the needlepoint designs and of Venice. There is section on Venetian Textiles, again with many beautiful pictures. Clearly these needlepoint designs are inspired by some of these textiles.
Glorafilia Stitching is a combination of some decorative stitches and Crewel Embroidery techniques along with Continental, Basketweave or Long and Short Needlepoint stitches. The effect is unique.
The authors had this idea before Decorative Stitching was much done.
Glorafilia: The Venice Collection has 24 original designs. Each has a full color chart and complete directions.
There is a section on Finishing, very good stitch samples, showing how each stitch is "built" in a photograph, not a drawing and a section of Trace Patterns.
