The first book is called Pictorial weavings from the viking age by Sofie Krafft. In the book you can find drawings and patterns of textiles from the Oseberg vikingship. This ship was found in a large burial mound in Oseberg, Norway in early 1900's. If you want to read more about this find than you can do that here.
The second book is called Twelve British embroiderers by Diana Springall. The fun thing is that it is a English-Japanse book which I found in the Danish library and read by me, the Dutch girl. This made me smile but the book has also very interesting examples of embroidery.
There is one small problem though, I found some lovely stitches but the explanation is in Japanese and so I don't know their names. Made a collage of these stitches and if you know any of their names you are more than welcome to share!
That's all for now.
