Gardening with Silk & Gold: A History of Gardens in Embroidery
Beck, Thomasina
David & Charles, Devon UK, 1997
ISBN# 0-7153-0487-9
Beck uses old pattern books, portraits, engravings, etc. to show how gardens were mirrored in embroideries (e.g. knot gardens/Elizabethan needlework). Unfortunately, this book starts with the Elizabethan period. Excellent color photos and well documented info for those Elizabethan admirers. Not much in the way of learning stitches or techniques. IB
Intermediate
