Art Nouveau Embroidery Patterns from 1879: Charted for Needlepoint & Counted Cross Stitch


This book contains charts for 31 borders, 34 different motifs, 17 complete alphabets and 4 sets of numbers.

These beautiful designs with their sinuous flowing lines are typical of the “new” artistic style that became popular in the 1870s– Art Nouveau. Diminutive booklets– in this instance, 3-1/2” by 5-1/4”– contained accordion-pleated pages with patterns and alphabets in a format small enough to tuck into a needleworker’s bag. The patterns in this book are part of a series published by H. K. Berlin SW in Germany between 1870–1890.Designs charted on graph paper are a universal language which can be translated into needlepoint, counted cross stitch and beadwork, with each square on the pattern representing a single stitch. All patterns use full stitches, no half-or-quarter stitches.

Softcover book (6″ x 8-1/4″) with 35 pages. All patterns are clearly charted on graph paper, suitable for needlepoint and counted cross stitch. If this title shows as out-of-stock, it will be backordered and shipped from the publisher in about 2 weeks, at no additional charge.
