Product Description: Moss is oceanic: his poems rise, crest, crash, and rise again like waves.

9781784102401 | Carcanet Pr, December 3, 2015, cover price $16.35 | About this edition: Stanley Moss dedicates these poems 'to departed friends: human, canine, arboreal, avian', setting the tone for a collection that is celebratory, occasional, salutatory.

Even those who have never done needlepoint before and have no special artistic talents will find themselves turning out exciting designs with the help of this new book on an age-old craft. Carol Cheney Rome's definitive volume thoroughly explores all aspects of Bargello, a family of needlepoint stitches that has increasingly gained in popularity since the 1500s. Bargello, also called Florentine embroidery, is characteristically worked in various repeat, shaded geometric designs. However, the Bargello stitches can also be used to make up representational or pictorial designs. After a brief historical survey, the author introduces in detail seven basic stitches that make up Bargello patterns. Following that is a large section of "new-old" Florentine patterns: updated, fresh-looking, but traditional versions of the Bargello theme. Four border patterns based on the classical principles are included. Then the author moves on to show how Bargello can be used in new ways to create beautiful, eye-catching patterns. Three kaleidoscopic, or four-way, patterns and two tartans are included in this section. Four animals make up the last section of designs, and the reader learns how effective pictorial designs can be when the Bargello stitches are used to fill them in. A discussion about designing your own Bargello with special emphasis on four-way patterns is, like the rest of the book, richly illustrated throughout with large photographs, and with helpful diagrams. The four full-size animal diagrams present a special bonus to the reader. Mrs. Rome has added practical "how-to" hints in boxes to make each person's stitching experience easier and more fun.
