Format: Paperback
Miss Franklin is an expert in her field. She has expanded and perfected the art of goldwork, taking it to new levels of interest and beauty. Her techniques are not only understandable but also very appealing: you feel like sitting down and beginning a project almost immediately. That is if you can drag yourself away from the well-written text and the gorgeous close-up pictures! I had the honor and pleasure of taking a goldwork course from her in the Victoria and Albert Museum when I fortuitously was in London a couple years ago. She's patient and interesting to speak with and graciously signed my book. She has a website where she sells the rare and expensive threads you need to make these pieces authentic. It's worth it. See also her new book on Whitework. I have hundreds of needlework books and this is among my top 10 favorites. You gotta get it.

While this isn't the first book on fine goldwork I'd suggest to newcomers (for that, see Hazel Corbett's "Goldwork: Techniques...etc.), it's and excellent addition to any serious needleworker's book stash. She pushes you to fly--to go beyond reproducing or nearly reproducing traditional patterns, figures, and even techniques--to pursuing your own designs. She uses her threads and metals in new ways, as you can see from the cover. If you're familiar with ecclesiastical embroidery or other traditional forms/uses of goldwork, and somewhat tired of limiting yourself to that, Franklin's book will give you a kick in the butt to get you out of your rut. I needed that, since I tend to get very wrapped up in skill/technique and forget about the sheer joy of design. None of her work is shocking or truly avant garde, but it's still a fresh look at a great, and centuries-old, method of surface textile ornamentation.

Great book. Not traditional book on gold-work. Opens your eyes on more modern uses for this art form.
