Vintage embroidery book

Found another old embroidery book in the vaults of the Danish library. This one is from Eivor Fisher and was first published in 1952.

Not only gives it instructions on a number of stitches and examples. It also contains a number of drawings which one can copy. 

Wouldn't mind to have this gem added to my bookcollection.

This book is written in Swedish but it is also translated in English in 1953.

Hope you will come across it one day and that you will take a peak inside.

Ah, these patterns are so typical for Swedish embroidery in the 50:s!

Did I tell you that per lucky chance, I found an embroidery like this at a charity selling here in a small village in Austria, and it's definitely of Swedish origin, as I discovered on a small label on the back side?

It's so retro that it almost has a modern charm!

Looks like a wonderful book to peruse with a cup of tea! :)
