If you are a fan of William the Conqueror, British History or the Bayeaux Tapestry, you'll likely enjoy this book. It has some great information and is well written.

I have had this on my wishlist for some time and I was given it this christmas by a good frient.

This book looks not only at the story told by the Bayeux Tapestry, but also how it was made, the stitches used and the people who it is thought did the work on it - from the drawing of the cartoons to the embroidery.

If you love history, or are a keen embroiderer who loves to look at historical embroidery, this is a definite must for your library.

Worth every penny you spend.A "who dun it" of a fascinating piece of England's cultural and political history.Give it to an embroiderer and watch them light up.

The font makes this book extremely difficult to read.

I would have given this book five stars, but for the medieval font. It is VERY difficult to read, especially if you have older eyes. I'm looking for my lighted magnifying glass. I would love to read it instead of just looking at the pictures.
