If you are looking for an inspiration to decorate some kind of Church linen, this is for you. The first part explains the symbology of the motifs, in the second part, you find all the patterns.
Obviously, the patterns can be used to decorate whatever you like.
The booklet is a simple black and white print, but it is clear and that is all one needs.
The best compliments for this book came from my husband (the kind of guy who will use duct tape or staples to hem a torn jean), he said: somehow these patterns must be kind of an archetype, I don't understand them, but they move me and I like them.
Adding a picture of some of the patterns that are in here. Most patterns are band/border type, but that just makes designing your own band sampler much nicer. I plan on doing that myself, soon. =D
Charted Peasant Designs from Saxon Transylvania is absolutely packed with black and white charts, and the motifs are not just the usual borders and bands, but enchanting huge designs loaded with pageantry. You'll find here peacocks, stags, falconers, knights, gryphons, horses, a whole bestiary of unidentifiable fantastic mythical creatures. The charts are absolutely clear -- not marked with wobbly hand-drawn symbols as many of the vintage English or Danish chart books you'll find.
This book is out of print now, and once the cross-stitch community at large discovers the quality of these designs, the price of a used copy will only go up. Get on the bandwagon while you can, stitcher friends.
