One of the best source books for clear line art showing plant and flower forms - more than five hundred needlework patterns and designs from a Victorian album. This is a combination of true to life, accurate designs and needlepoint designs which are stylised and with repeating borders. All are taken from an original collection of turn-of-the-century embroidery designs from a company that used these transfer patterns commercially on textiles and fabrics.
The first fifty pages of the book is dedicated to accurately and clearly drawn plant and flower types, from honeysuckle to dahlias, lilacs, lilies, roses and many more plant types. The second part contain styled motifs, borders, centres, corners and scenes for framing. Ideal for flowers, sprays and greenery; butterflies, bluebirds and insects; geometric designs, sunbursts and natural scenes. Complete instructions on how to transfer the designs to cloth. 512 motifs from the Wm. Briggs and Company "Album of Transfer Patterns"

Illustrations: 512 designs.
