Guide Review - Berlin Work: Samplers & Embroidery of the Nineteenth Century

This is one of my absolute favorite needlepoint books, and I refer to it every time I need inspiration. The author, Raffaella Serena has done an excellent job in compiling materials for this book. The publisher, Lacis, is the Berkeley, California-based needlework shop owned by Jules & Perrin Kliot, which also contains a museum of lace and textiles.
