A lovely book! Clear and informative text as is expected from Rosemary Crill.The joy of the book, to me, lies in the quality of the photographs and the choice of the examples showing the clarity of colour but keeping the subtlety. How fabric pattern is used within garments is made very clear. The detail of the designs is explicit, but shown generously on the page. I shall use it as a sourcebook for design for embroidery.I'm very happy to own this book.
