SOLD Motifs d'Hier * £27 €40 $80 Including Shipping (Australia & New Zealand $85)

In mint condition, this 80 page French softback book overflows with facsimiles of the old concertina pattern booklets or leporelli.
There are entire series of alphabets, borders and motifs
which can be used for inclusion in samplers, sampler design or simply stitched on linen to make your own cloth pattern books.
What is so nice about this book is that the patterns have not been transcribed, instead they appear as an album
just like you had collected them yourself - though of course, these little booklets, if you are lucky to find them, command astonishing sums.
Hours and hours of inspiration - a great source book, now difficult to find.
