Embroidered books are enjoying a huge surge in popularity, and these precious items can be works of art in themselves. This beautiful guide by the acclaimed author of Bags with Paper and Stitch contains all the techniques for making a wide range of book styles, including books with sewn spines, wrap-up books, zig-zag books and wallet-style books, with both soft and hard backings and intricately constructed bindings. The books are then embellished with exquisite embroidery in many different styles - from a Wild West-influenced wallet book to a sewn book scattered with delicate flower petals. A wide range of materials is used, including all the latest specialist fabrics such as Lutradur and Extravorganza, plus hand-made paper and unusual found objects including seashells and driftwood.

Review quote

I cannot praise this book highly enough. It is tremendous. All the things a craft book should be - full of information, ideas and inspiration - the work is exquisite. On the practical side, the book contains all you need to know about book construction. There are numerous suggestions for embellishing book covers including digital imagery and printing. All are accompanied by detailed instructions. If you just try some of the projects from this book it would be worth the while, but I think you will want to have a go at most of them, which makes this book worth its weight in gold. Altered books have become very popular in recent years and this is the best of the books I have seen on the subject. This 128 page book is immaculately produced with high end printing, superb photography and clear instructions. http://www.karenplatt.co.uk
