9780715304877: Gardening With Silk and Gold: A History of Gardens in Embroidery

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.
