New Obsession – Antique Sample Books

I have found a new obsession. I want want want to collect antique embroidery sample books. Possibly french ones. But ones at least that are filled with dusty pages and exquisite embroidery and old leather covers. Want.

Want a new obsession? See more over on trouvais, with more examples of books you’ll want. Just a warning.

You know what else this makes me want to do? Bind all our sample stitch outs into a big, ornate gothic looking leather book for future generations to ponder over. Never mind that it would be filled with skulls and steampunk instead of flowers. That would just make it more unique, right?
