Book description

Produced in response to the ‘Call for entries’ exhibition theme POINT – curated by Emma Powell and Melanie Bush of ‘We Love Your Books’, this altered book takes the subject of needlepoint as its basis.


Working with a 1930s edition of Embroidery Without Tears, this altered book explores the idea of the traditional sampler; pages are decorated with cross-stitched letterforms and decorative detailing. Phrases offering needlework advice to the embroiderer are rubber-stamped throughout the book. The book is contained within a fabric slip-case.
