Pictorial Embroidery in England Book Excerpt:

The little-known art of Berlin Work was once the most commonly practiced art form among European women. Pictorial Embroidery in England is the first academic study of both pictorial Berlin Work and its precursor, needlepainting, exploring their cultural status in the 18th and 19th centuries. From enlightenment practices of copying to the development of an industrial aesthetic and the making of the modern amateur, Berlin Work developed as an official knowledge associated with notions of cultural and scientific progress. However, with the advent of the Arts and Crafts movement and modernist aesthetics, Berlin Work was gradually demoted to a craft hobby. Delving into the social, cultural and economic context of English pictorial embroidery, Pictorial Embroidery in England recovers Berlin Work as an art form, and demonstrates how this overlooked practice was once at the centre of cultural life.

Embroidered Treasures Book Excerpt:

The Embroiderers' Guild was founded in 1906 and has in its collection embroideries from all over the world. These wonderful works, which somehow survived through the ages, could be said to be one of the most important groups of embroideries assembled in one place. Stitched pieces and fragments were gathered together by early members of the Guild and inserted into portfolios that were circulated among members.Nature has always been a huge source of inspiration to embroiderers and this fantastic book showcases the Embroiderers' Guild's huge collection of embroidered birds through the ages. From the subtle shades seen in crewelwork and the Buratto lace of Europe to the glittering silk, metal and beetle wing designs of China, Japan and India, author Dr Annette Collinge presents a beautiful array of stitchwork that truly is a feast for the eyes.Featuring full-colour photographs and extended captions, items are shown also in full along with detailed images to show off the stunning stitched birds at their best. These wonderful embroidered treasures are as varied as badges, postcards, aprons, wall hangings, dresses, cushion covers and samplers, some of which date back to the 17th century.Collected from many different countries, this exquisite book is an opportunity to see fabulous works that are very rarely seen in public. Mary Corbet, of Needle 'n Thread, said in her review of the first book in this series:"e;Embroidered Treasures: Flowers is a fantastic book! It's inspirational. It's informative. It's beautiful!"e;For most of us who will never see a collection of embroideries like these up close and personal, this lovely book is the best way to experience them and learn about them. We can take what we learn and apply it to our own needlework pursuits. Or we can just enjoy the beauty of the pieces and appreciate the history behind them.It's a great book for your reference library..."e;
