"Lundberg has designed a brilliant collection of knits using the palettes, motifs and, in some cases, shapes she discovered on her sojourn through the Middle Ages. This is passionate geekery at its finest, and it's yielded a visual feats of twenty designs- sweaters, vests, and accessories- each presented on page with project photographs and images of the paintings on which Lundberg based her designs." —Vogue Knitting (January 2013)
"The patterns are complex and beautiful—knit in one piece and steeked. They are worked in fine yarn in colors based on how the paintings look today, muted and earthy. Fans of fine colorwork, this is a book worth seeking out." —www.knitty.com
"Though this book appeals to a specialized audience (knitters with an interest in traditional stranded colorwork and the skills to make such detailed patterns) those knitters are passionate about their craft, and will appreciate Lundberg's inspiring collection." —Library Journal (April 2013)
"Stunning brocade and swirling vine patterns with embellished borders present themselves in 20 knitting patterns of sweaters, vests, and accessories like scarves and gloves, for men, women and children. . . . The vibrant colored photographs and illustrations are large, clear and detailed." —Paula Moliver, Examiner
