The Art of Embroidery: Inspirational Stitches, Textures and Surfaces by Françoise Tellier-Loumagne will inspire needleworkers to think outside the box. Hundreds of stunning textural photographs offer a dreamlike look at nature’s beauty. Although the book does not instruct on embroidery techniques, it invites the reader to explore, express, and execute embroidery without restraint. The concepts of design, composition, and use of materials expand the perception of what embroidery can do.
