SUMMARY- All interior photographs are black-and-white. You get a lovely overview of this specific period of embroidery along with lists suggesting further reading, and places you may visit that have examples on display. It's a shame all the photographs are in black-and-white instead of color, but there are still a lot of great examples shown.
