Examples of medieval stumpwork--the art of embroidering using raised, 3-D embellishments--can be found in museums and galleries throughout Europe. Considered among the most intricate and lovely of embroidery styles, it requires a delicate touch. Now the secrets of stumpwork are revealed through eight beautiful floral projects, all inspired by the 16th century illuminatedBook of Hourscreated by Jean Bourdichon for Anne of Brittany. The embroideries include "Corncockle and Dragonfly," "Snowdrop and Cranefly," and the lovely "Venus' Looking Glass and Bumble-bee." In addition to instructions for every technique, this fully-illustrated book also provides tracing patterns and a comprehensive stitch glossary.
