Blackwork is a classic 16th-century embroidery technique in which stunning monochrome designs are created by embroidering a large variety of counted-thread geometric patterns in black thread. This book covers everything from creating a design to choice of fabric, threads, and stitches, with many stitch diagrams and suggested patterns. A host of beautiful blackwork pictures, both traditional and modern, will inspire any enthusiast, and there are even ideas for working with colored threads. From timeless charm of Elizabethan embroidery to the bold chiaroscuro of contemporary work, blackwork's entrancing intricacy never ceases to appeal.
