An Embroidery Book. By A. K. Arthur. (A. and C.

Black. 10s. 6d.)—Perhaps now the war is over women have leisure for embroidery. It is a gentle and pleasing art, and this volume should be of assistance to all would-be embroiderers and an inspiration to many who have not felt the desire to keep their fingers from idleness in so useful a manner. It is both clear and comprehensive, and its coloured illustrations are models of what illustrations should be.
