"Superb, razor-sharp reproductions which give a proper sense of the
beauty and power of the medium... its intellectual value is
undoubted."-Paul Binski, Art Newspaper
"Not only a catalogue and scholarly monograph, but a visual feast, with magnificent colour plates on virtually every page, bursting at the seams with titbits of fascinating information. It's the sort of book that makes you want to hug yourself with glee: revelatory and as exquisitely produced as the medieval embroidery it celebrates."-Juliet Barker, Literary Review
'This beautifully produced new book [...] fills a notable gap in current literature on English embroidery.' - Frances Pritchard, Textile History
