192 pp with a section of black-and-white and color plates on pages 98 – 127. Indexed. The last 60 or so pages is a facsimile reproduction of the original French text and illustrations. Translated and annotated by Nikki Scheuer, with additional notes by Edward Maeder. From the Director’s Preface: “Embroidery, a striking example of man’s desire to decorate and of his ability to invent, has acquired a special significance in our machine-dominated world. The fascination with embroidery and with things handmade seems to intensify as the care, time, and experience needed to produce them has grown decreasingly available. . . . The Los Angeles County Museum of Art takes great pride in presenting this translation of Charles Germain de Saint-Aubin’s Art of the Embroiderer, together with a facsimile of the original eighteenth-century French text and engravings.”
