Now I wish I could read Norwegian

And all because of a new book by Duran Publishing about embroidered clothing from Norway.  The book is called 'Broderte Bunader' (Embroidered Bunads a hundred years of bundad history), and will be released next month. (2nd May 2014)

The pages they have released on their web page are just so tempting.  Some great embroidery designs,

even some examples of Blackwork.

They do have some of their books translated into English for the American market I hope they follow this one up with a translation.

I am sure you will love just looking at the photographs and won't need a degree in Norwegian to enjoy the book.
The Blackwork designs are so delicate with lots of white space.

It is a lovely book and I would love to be able to read all about the history of this embroidery. Still, the photos will be lovely.
