Книга по чёрно-белой вышивке
Blackwork is a delicate form of embroidery traditionally worked in black silk thread on linen. This book aims to take blackwork beyond its origins as a trim for collars and cuffs, and introduces different colour schemes in a variety of projects.
Stitched in black silk thread, often embellished with spangles, this beautiful form of embroidery has a dazzling richness of design. 18 projects demonstrate the variety and traditions, from graceful Arab-inspired patterns to bold modern styles. Trace blackwork's evolution with photos of classic examples, and begin the pleasurable task of embroidering your own: the techniques are easy, the required equipment minimal. Make such wonderful projects as rose and tulip bookmarks, festive Christmas cards, a Celtic knot tray, and more.
