A superb draftsman with an exquisite eye for detail, Graham Rust creates needlepoint designs that are true works of art. Terrific color photos and full-color charts present 17 projects, including a monkey cushion, a cheetah footstool, a sunflower chair, a seashell rug, a Chinese vases pillow, and a mouse-in-a-teapot tea cozy. Although not meant for the beginner, these designs are so clearly presented that most readers shouldn't require more than intermediate skill and a certain degree of patience. Rust's talent as a watercolorist is manifest on every page, making this book not only a practical guide but a visual treat as well. --Amy HandyFrom Library Journal:
A well-known British painter of murals, Rust (The Painted House, Knopf, 1988) uses adaptations of his own watercolors in this first venture into needlepoint design. His designs of plants and animals with architectural elements show the painter's touch, having complex shading and balanced composition. The projects have large, full-color charts keyed to DMC Anchor or Appleton yarns, plus a reproduction of the original and a photograph of the finished piece. There is a general section on working and finishing. For arts and crafts collections.
