    I read this book in two sittings nearly a year apart It's considered a classic for pulled thread work The age of the book shows in strictly black and white photos There's only a few examples that would benefit from colour anyway because most pulled thread work is done as white on white I'm probably only going to use some of the simplest stitches in my current work because I'm using multiple techniue types
