About this title


For knitting and needlepoint that explode with a riot of colour and pattern, nothing beats these brilliant projects. But, this is more than a simple collection of eye-grabbing costumes and tapestries to make--it's a lesson in style by a truly original and fearless designer who doesn't hesitate to go gloriously over the top. And, that makes these brilliant photographs of objects that inspired his work--which range from small Oriental sculptures to London's stone walls--almost as much fun to look at as the projects are to do. Compare luminous blue-and-green Persian pots with a similarly shaded blue patch crewneck--and then knit the sweater yourself, either using the given colours or choosing other, equally rich tones that suit your own wardrobe.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
