Book review

A sourcebook for the many thousands of needlework enthusiasts, chock-full of many beautiful designs done in a simple style of draughtsmanship—easy to relate to and reproduce

A book for every tapestry and embroidery lover, this is a collection of the bright and colorful, original and detailed designs that artist Phoebe Hart stitched on canvas, using a mixture of wools to produce rugs and hangings that today are collectors' items. The word "inspirational" is often too freely used, but Phoebe Hart's canvas work is just that, each design a master class in composition and crammed full of intricate, detailed borders, lush flowers and fruit, and light-hearted, color-bright butterflies, birds, and fish—rich sources of inspiration for every needlecraft enthusiast. Phoebe Hart (1917-2010) was American by birth, but went to school in England, after which she studied stage design at the Slade under Vladimir Polunin, who had designed sets for Diaghilev, and for whom she painted backdrops for the Ballet Russe.
