Textile books

Here I would like to introduce paper-bound books that are embellished with embroidery – usually on the cover. Two of them have been created at the request of Dr. Maywald, Deutsches Buchbinde-Museum (German Museum of Bookbinding) in Mainz. A work of art in collaboration with several artist friends has been created for the Children’s Hospice in Wiesbaden.

The following display is of books purely made of cloth, paper books with cloth covers and combination books with Lutradur covers. There is a paper book on the subject of “Around the World with a Needle”, which contains all the designs and sketches for the shown embroidery work as well as a cloth book with the actual embroidery pieces.
