First Edition Modern Embroidery £35 $70 €50 Including Shipping

Another rare and special vintage embroidery book, Modern Embroidery is the historic record of an exhibition of modern embroidery organized by the British Institute of industrial Art at the Victoria &Albert Museum in 1932.
Containing 128 pages, this soft back book of 1933 - over 80 years old! - has full page descriptions of the pieces, including illustrations, and wonderfully pristine hand-mounted colour illustrations.
Of historic interest are panels designed by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant.
I am sorry this book is now sold.
