This richly illustrated, eponymously titled catalogue accompaniment to the exhibition @ the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, emphasizes the art inherent in embroidery & contextualizes the examples within aesthetic movements. The objects & designs are myriad: "pictorial embroidery," wool & cotton sailor's pants embroidered with a running whorl stitch resembling tattoo art, winding vines of flowers in full-bloom rendered to near historical precision; samplers sewn by schoolgirls, table covers, fire screens, valances as domestic artifacts s resonate far beyond both home & homespun.
