Synopsis: The companion volume to Machine Stitch, Hand Stitch is an essential read and reference for any textiles student, practicing embroiderer, designer and artist. Together these two titles form the significant and substantial references on current stitch practice. Each chapter is written by an established maker, embroiderer, artist or academic and discusses hand stitch from a different perspective. Wonderful illustrations of artistic hand stitch, both contemporary and historical, demonstrate this diverse and intimate craft in detail. The contributors draw upon important collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Whitworth Art Gallery Manchester, and the rich archive held by Manchester School of Art in this extensively researched and beautifully presented volume.
