Country Bumpkin Publications has published, over the last few years, a very good and useful series of needlepoint & needlework books in their A to Z series.
This is the 13th book in the series. Originally published in 2006, this is the latest edition re-printed in 2011 in Australia.
As with all the books in the A_Z series, this is an easy to use book with 30 projects.
The chapters are:
Tools & Equipment
Stitches & Techniques with a number of sub-categories
Edging & Fringes
and a full Index
Each project has full color pictures & illustrations. Each has a list of supplies needed, an order of work, This Design Used, finishing and a color key.
All (or most) of these designs are adaptable to needlepoint. another idea is to stitch the beads on to the stitched needlepoint canvas.
A-Z of Bead Embroidery is a new, glossy stiff cover paperbound book. The inside pages are metal spiral bound. There are 128 pages.
Published by Search Press in 2006, this is the 2011 reprint edition.
