About the book:

Over the centuries, the spectacular landscape of Iceland, and the history it has imposed on its people, have given rise to the unique artistic and needlecraft heritage which has provided the inspiration for this book - a collection of more than 40 needlepoint designs. They include borders and flowers, repeating patterns and sampler motifs, stars and geometrics, traditional symbols, intrepid knights and mythical beasts. Large-scale charts are provided for the designs, which have been photographed to show every detail. They are worked simply and quickly in cross stitch without the use of a cumbersome frame, and the finished embroideries can be used in a variety of ways. Suggestions are given throughout, with instructions for making up into cushions, wall hangings and framed pictures.
