This book combined the practicality of most cross-stitch pattern books (there are probably 8-10 samplers with charts of how you can make them) WITH the historical and aesthetic interest of showing photos of several very old samplers.

There are so many lovely patterns included in this book. I would love to make them all, but just don't have the time. I really like the additional information about samplers in general which was included in the book. I will definitely be making some of these in the future.

The best part of this book? The antique samplers.
