Author 1Sheila Paine
Editorial ReviewThe art of embroidery has been practiced for thousands of years. In the West, traditions have been at the mercy of trade and fashion, but in other regions embroidery continues to be rooted in ancient beliefs and superstitions. This beautifully illustrated book examines in detail the fascinating symbolism of the motifs and patterns that give life to these traditional textiles from around the world. The global range is as remarkable as the variety of materials and motifs on display. Each textile—from Sumatran sarong to Ghanaian banner to Native American pouch and Guatemalan trousers—bears its own distinctive designs. The book covers all aspects of the subject: key regional items, cuts, fabrics, stitches, and mythological, religious, and spiritual symbols. Complete with a glossary, a dictionary of stitches, and information on public collections as well as how to collect textiles of one’s own, this is an unrivaled guide for anyone interested in textiles, costume, or craft. 362 colour and 156 black-and-white photographs and illustrations
