From Library Journal:
Warner describes this as "a concise, non-academic and easy-to-read historical background," and it is just that. She provides an overview of the development of embroidery by describing important works in historical context. The emphasis is British, and illustrations include sketches, black-and-white photographs, and 12 color plates. Sidebars expand on significant persons. Appended are a bibliography, list of collections, timeline, and the entire text of the often-quoted "The Husband's Complaint." The result is similar in content and scope to Mary Eirwen Jones's A History of Western Embroidery ( LJ 2/1/70). Though a glossary and additional illustrations would have been useful, this is a beautifully presented book to add where there is interest.
