This is an interesting book profiling modern embroidery artists. It contains interviews, photographs of their work, and discussions of different trends in this art form.
I am an embroiderer who has stuck to more traditional embroidery, but this book opened my eyes to new ways of thinking about embroidery and got my creative juices flowing. Now I just have to make time for that creativity.
The book offers some project plans and patterns from some of these artists that will inspire and give a starting point to those interested in these new ideas.

This was a very disappointing. and somewhat annoying and pretentious book. All the work in it is the sort that might be fun for the person to stitch but a dud for anyone else to look at. The book is basically people who have never stitched, "discovering" embroidery and coming up with very very basic pieces with very very basic stitches and calling it art. The articles are full of mutual admiration. The book feels like it came out of the Sixties when hippies discovered you could chain-stitch on your jeans.
