Featuring work from the mid-sixteenth century to about 1900, this colourful book draws exclusively on the Victoria and Albert Museum's outstanding collection of Ottoman embroidery. Outlining the historical setting and then looking at the specific techniques, this beautifully illustrated book explores the remarkable tradition and complex art form of Ottoman embroidery, especially the double-sided embroideries which particularly facinates western observers. With 145 colour plates, 14 black-and-white diagrams, a glossary and an bibliography.
