Jane Austen (Stitched) -Textile art book
Dispatches from a small business in
Jane Austen themed Textile art book
The World of Jane Austen (Stitched) is an art book based on the recurring themes and imagery in the work of Jane Austen.
From the red coats of the militia to the elegance of a grand house, the rich universe of her books have been explored in detailed embroidery. This series of fabric illustrations use modern colours, materials and patterns to bring to life the objects, people and situations that would have been familiar to contemporary readers. Each illustration is based either on stills from modern adaptations of Jane Austen’s work or pieced together from historical sources such as the V & A archive, portraits and Regency book illustrations.
Each illustration has been hand-stitched using a range of textile materials and techniques from appliqué and embroidery to fabric paint and the application of beads and ribbon. These fabric pieces have been photographed and printed in this book, along with quotes from Jane Austen's work.
The book has been printed on weighty 150gsm papers for a luxury feel and also has illustrated end papers. The covers are bound with Wibalin linen textured paper in a rich olive colour, then wrapped in a half size paper cover band.
Size: 180 x 148 mm

I recieved this beautiful little hardcover book full of photos of hand stitched Jane Austen portraits and quotes. I love the green book itself and it is signed by the artist / author with a Jane Austen quote. Arrived in good time and I'm glad I bought it!
Thank you for this delightful book of your appliquéd work!
Everything was perfect! Love my new artwork! Thank you so much!
I love this fabric collage because I, too, am a night owl. It's such an interesting medium for collage and there're always new details to see. Thanks so much!
