Silk and gold radiate luxury, and embroiderers through the ages valued these materials, and with them reproduced wonderfully flowering embroidered gardens. This revised edition of Thomasina Beck's 1979 classic presents a cornucopia of ideas for those wishing to continue the tradition. Engravings, woodcuts, portraits and a wealth of embroideries, patterns, and pictures illustrate the intriguing parallel between the two arts. Specially commissioned drawings update these sources for contemporary patterns. 160 pages (95 in color), 75 b/w illus., 8 3/4 x 12.
