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.
