5.0 out of 5 stars One gorgeous book!!!! 21 Jan 2009
By twig - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a big cross stitch fan but rather picky about the books I buy. I purchased this book after seeing a few of the designs in Cross Stitcher magazine, and I am glad I did! This book is fantastic! There are many designers' Art Nouveau styles provided in beautiful large projects - Mucha, Mackintosh, Crane, Tiffany - and an unexpected surprise, a cross-stitch version of Klimt's 'The Kiss.' Any one of these projects is worth the cost of the book on its own, but not only are there a number of beautiful large designs, each designer is given a section for smaller pieces and decorations as well, inviting the reader to use them in whatever way they wish.

So beautiful. I can't wait to start stitching these designs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stitch Your Own Nouveau Painting! 6 Aug 2012
By Coffee Addicted Writer's Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
From the 1880s through 1915, Art Nouveau was a popular art style that included organic curves, natural forms, and vivid colors. Now author Barbra Hammet has brought out Cross Stitch Art Nouveau with over seventy inspirational designs for cross stitchers based on the famous painting and designs of Louis Comfort Tiffany, Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Emile Galle, Frances MacDonald, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Charles Annesley Voysey, Walter Cane, William de Morgan, and. Aubrey Beardsley.

Being an occasional cross stitcher myself, I found this cross stitch book to be a bit of fresh air. I get bored of the plain patterns and these unique patterns are a must for cross stitch lovers. Some of the projects in the book are: Brilliant Parakeets, The Kiss, Flowering Nature, Moonlit Garden, Tea Room Mural, Budding Poppies, Two Swans, Myths from the Deep, and the The Peacock Skirt.

If you have always wanted to own a piece of art and never could afford it, now you can stitch one of these beautiful designs yourself, frame it, and treasure it forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars unique book 17 May 2010
By yipee7374 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If people are looking for a different type of cross stitch book, i believe this book would satisfy their need. Barbara Hammet's book, Cross Stitch Art Nouveau, is a unique book having cross stitch designs by different artists such as Gustav Klimt, Alphomse Mucha and Louis Comfort Tiffany. There are ten chapters in this book and each chapter focuses on ten different artists in that era. My favorite design here is Gustav Klimt "The Kiss". I feel happy buying this book since the book offers designs that are not the usual. The level of difficulty of the designs varies. Some designs are simple, others are more difficult. I do hope others will enjoy this book as I do. Happy Stitching!

This book was so nice I had to buy a second. The second one was for my sister. I'm going to stitch all the patterns. They're projects I would give to both sexes.
