This is a fascinating work about many different kinds of canvaswork embroidery where your either leave open spaces by pulling threads together or remove threads from the canvas ground to leave open spaces to work in. The biggest problem with the book is that each chapter is set up as a sampler of the particular kind of work being discussed. It's not entirely clear to me how to use the book if you don't actually want to do the samplers.
