Art in Needlework, 1900

Art in Needlework, A Book about Embroidery was published in 1900 by the British decorative artist, Lewis Foreman Day (1845-1910), in collaboration with Mary Buckle (apparently because the author was afraid he would not be taken seriously as a man writing about a 'female' subject). Day was an important figure in the Arts and Crafts Movement.
