TOP 500 REVIEWERon 6 January 2013
This book describes, illustrates and gives the background to a unique and extraordinary collection of samplers made by the pupils at Ackworth School. The spare, monochrome designs, inspired by the Quaker faith, make them both austere and extraordinarily beautiful. The story behind them is full of human drama and tragedy. A wonderful book which will intrigue and inspire anyone interested in the long-neglected story of the place of textiles in our culture.

Although the book is titled "Quaker School Girl Samplers", there is a section on the little-known samplers produced by boys.
