These intriguing pieces, often made by affluent school girls, include pictorial panels and an elaborate box showing bible stories as well as costume accessories and fanciful items such as a frog-shaped purse.

      Fashionable in the 16th and 17th century, the art of embroidering unique covers for books saw a comeback in late 19th-century England, from the middle-class drawing room to the Arts and Crafts movement. Jessica Roberson explores the bibliomania, patriotism, and issues around gender so central to the revival. The shape of the future Britain was created in the 16th Century. During this 16th century, Britain cut adrift from the Catholic church, carving out a new national church, the Church of England, with the monarch as it's supreme head. The actions of King Henry VIII resulted in the 'Act of Supremacy' and Roman Catholicism was banned.

    In the sixteenth century, the popularity of embroidery in Europe was helped by the invention of printing. Early pattern books offered designs for cross stitch and other forms, such as blackwork. Cross stitch patterns were printed as black squares or dots, leaving the choice of colours to the embroiderer.
