New Zealand's Historic Samplers

New or Used: $38.95
A unique glimpse into our cultural history, and particularly women's history, through more than 80 historic samplers - many specially photographed for the book. Through exceptional first-hand research, involving travel around New Zealand and overseas, author Vivien Caughley has created a fascinating story that opens a window on our past, and the history and craft of needlework. It features samplers by colonial women as well as those who stitched samplers during World War II. This beautifully produced book will appeal to needlework practitioners, artists and designers, academics, and genealogists. The reverse of the jacket features a design of one of the samplers with instructions.
