Embroidered Visions: Photographs by Sheila Paine
This book presents a selection of photographs by embroidery specialist Sheila Paine taken during travels across four continents and twenty-six countries, from the 1980s to the early 2000s.
Over three thousand of her photographs are now held in the Pitt Rivers Museum in addition to a varied collection of her textiles.
The photographs here have have been chosen to reveal her eye for colour, pattern and texture; they show the people, processes and the roles of textiles encountered in everyday life. Many are published here for the first time.
