From the cover: This collection combines the tradition of cross stitch samplers as a way of recording needlework patterns and celebrating family events with the rich legacy of medieval decorative art. From the vibrant colours and highly graphic designs of stained glass windows, the scenes of everyday life depicted in paintings and manuscripts, and the elaborate shields and emblems on heraldic coats-of-arms, Angela Wainwright has created a variety of samplers and smaller pieces to commemorate special occasions and to decorate the home. Source material for each design and charted patterns are shown in full colour, and all are suitable for both cross stitch beginners and the more advanced.
Very Good. Lightly rubbed at the tips of the wrappers. Text complete, clean and tight.
93 pages. Index. 11″ x 8¾”.
