A very informative source book originally published in the 1800's.
The designs and motifs included are based on ancient Greek and Roman works.
Inspiration for anyone interested in design, embroidery etc.
I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Dover Publications via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review. ( )
