Stumpwork Embroidery Butterflies & Moths
Jane Nicholas

Stumpwork Embroidery Butterflies and Moths is the third in a series of books by Jane Nicholas featuring insects in conjunction with flowers.
Collecting insects, and displaying them, has long been the delight of natural history enthusiasts. In the 19th century, collecting butterflies and moths as serried rows n specimen boxes, or as decorative patterns in framed pictures, was a popular pursuit. Faithful to the tradition of these collectors, the Moth and Butterfly Specimen Box in this book is the third in Jane's series of stumpwork insect boxes, preceded by those in Stumpwork Dragonflies (2000), and The Stumpwork, Goldwork and Surface Embroidery Beetle Collection (2004). Lavishly illustrated in colour, with detailed step-by-step instructions accompanied by explanatory diagrams, this book will be a valued addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in textured and dimensional embroidery.
