Embroidery: The Language of Art

Written by Linda Eaton

The definition of the word art has changed over time. This book explores how the creation of embroidered objects fit into the changing definitions of art, craft, and design throughout the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries and features exquisite items ranging from samplers, pictures, and embellished household goods, including seat and table covers, to personal accessories, such as purses, carrying bags, a book cover, and more.

View truly amazing embroidered works of art made by talented and artistic women who both copied patterns and also brought design elements from various sources to create their own unique works of art.
