Tacon and Wood aren't the firstAor the lastAcraft designers to adapt traditional ethnic textile designs to contemporary needlepoint. It would be difficult to choose between these books, as both are beautifully put together, featuring easy-to-stitch projects outstanding in both color and form. Wood's book includes 25 projects based on weavings from Afghanistan, Turkey, and Iran, while Tacon's book includes 43 designs, many for small pieces like pin cushions, glasses cases, needlecases, sachets, and greeting card insets. As is the case with all geometric patterns, these projects could be adapted to other textile crafts such as cross-stitch, tapestry weaving, and tapestry crochet. Recommended for public libraries.

Is there ever anything completely new in design? British textile artist Wood borrows and adapts centuries-old motifs from the rug makers of central Asia, and then translates more than 25 different kilims into personal and homestyle needlepoint items. Flat-weave carpets from Afghanistan, Turkey, and Iran are emulated. Chapter 1 provides a brief introduction to the geography and symbolism surrounding the weavings. Then each design, prefaced by a few sentences about its original provenance, includes a color photograph and a color graph as well as a list of materials and how-to-finish information. Great color combinations are featured, as are unique motifs and patterns, such as camels, peacocks, and two-headed unidentified animals. Barbara Jacobs
