62. A. COUNTER-CHANGE PATTERN, INLAY OR APPLIQUÉ.--Yellow satin and crimson velvet. The outline, which is in gold, falls chiefly upon the yellow, so as not to disturb the exact balance of light and dark, which it is essential to preserve in counter-change. Part of a stole. Spanish. 16th century (V. & A. M.)

B. APPLIQUÉ, of deep crimson velvet upon white satin, outlined with paler red cord. The outlines, meeting together, form a stem of double cord. Italian. 17th century. (V. & A. M.)

I tried opening it both in pdf and html format, and then in .rtf. I found that all illustrations have been replaced with little bracketed notes:
[Illustration: 4. CROSS-STITCH.]
This makes it pretty much useless for learning how the various stitches are made or used. But if you already know what they look like, the text is mildly interesting.

Author of the Day

WJ Lundy
As a still-serving military veteran, WJ Lundy has over 15 years of combined service with the Army and Navy in Europe, the Balkans and Southwest Asia. He is also the author of the very successful WTF series, in which Lundy applies his military experience to paint action-packed, realistic scenes in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies roam the lands. Today, Lundy chats with us about his Escape omnibus, how he wrote his first novel in a notebook in Afghanistan and why his zombies are scarier than most.
