The main part of the book is an astonishing collection of over 250 Assisi embroidery designs. Nearly all are designs from around the year 1900, but it also includes new designs by the author. The drawings are very precise and are not so much meant to be used as a pattern for reproduction, but rather as something that is pleasing to the eye for you to enjoy. There are small borders, large borders, medallions, corner pieces, and even complete designs for large tablecloths
This book includes a chapter exploring the real history of the Assisi embroidery style and a chapter about the definition of the style.
Finally, there are many photographs of executed works.
