Push stitchery is a beautiful book containing some of the most creative embroidery or stitch work artists.
Inside there are just too many pages I wanted to show, I took so many photos and then had to narrow them down to only four artists. I've chosen the four that appealed to me the most, and I think there is common ground linking each of the artists. Though the themes and overall outcome may be different, the way they address their illustration techniques and form shows similarities.
Each artist has a couple of double pages containing detailed photos of their work, descriptions and interview style questions.
