9781906388133: Embroidered Books: Design, Construction and Embellishment

Books with embroidered bindings and covers can be true works of art—treasured heirlooms to be handed down for generations. Now all needleworkers can master this traditional craft with the help of these detailed instructions and patterns. The projects combine several binding methods—including wrap-up and zig-zag books—with a range of exquisite embroidery designs, from a Wild West—themed wallet book to an intricately bound volume strewn with flower petals.

Review:

I cannot praise this book highly enough. It is tremendous. All the things a craft book should be - full of information, ideas and inspiration - the work is exquisite. On the practical side, the book contains all you need to know about book construction. There are numerous suggestions for embellishing book covers including digital imagery and printing. All are accompanied by detailed instructions. If you just try some of the projects from this book it would be worth the while, but I think you will want to have a go at most of them, which makes this book worth its weight in gold. Altered books have become very popular in recent years and this is the best of the books I have seen on the subject. This 128 page book is immaculately produced with high end printing, superb photography and clear instructions. http://www.karenplatt.co.uk
