"Contemporary" when it was published in 1994, this pre-internet look at stitching is still both inspirational and exciting. The artists--North American, British, European, and Australian--are much less alike and familiar than those in the recently published embroidery books I've been reading.

Fascinating bios of embroidery artists from all over the world. Each talks about influences, subject matter, and preferred materials (fabric, threads, stitches, hand and/or machine work). An especially intriguing look at embroidery given that it was published in 1994, before the internet was part of the arts & crafts culture.
