Riassunto: A master embroiderer shows how to create beautiful traditional Japanese embroideries using detailed illustrations and diagrams for more than 50 stitching techniques. Tamura takes readers into the world of "shishu", using a wonderful array of silk and gold threads. 90 color photos.
Recensione: With its intricate patterning, silken and golden threads, and traditional symbolic motifs, Japanese embroidery is unlike any other embroidery technique. The term "lost art" is all too often applied to intricate textiles and needlecraft, but fortunately not to this exquisite artistry, which is still going strong even after a thousand years. This volume traces the history and applications of an ancient and fascinating form, and provides extensive instructions for achieving these beautiful designs. Though the techniques require patience and practice, many of the seemingly complex stitches are actually composed of surprisingly simple elements, and all is clearly explained here. --Amy Handy
