Palestinian Embroidery Motifs

Last year when we were working on the posters for Israeli Apartheid Week: Beirut we were researching symbolic references to Palestine, and came across this amazing book. Covering all the villages of Palestine, it documents the patterns, motifs, and symbols that revealed themselves in the embroidery of the region, while also discussing the "travel" of such symbols to and from Europe, as the silk trade and industry came and left, for example. 200 examples are shown in full color and with accompanying patterns.
