The fragments of embroidery which inspired this book were once a part of larger pieces which originated in India in the eighteenth century. Motifs from the embroideries are expressed by Collagraphic prints and these form the pages. The embroideries have decreased in size over the centuries like the pages of the concertina book.The two components are stitched together with pamphlet stitches

Annwyn Dean taught Textile Art and wrote articles for the Embroidery press for many years. Paper was always her preferred medium and she now concentrates upon creating books in many forms. Her work is inspired by her collection of antique lace and embroidery. She lives in the north of England and exhibits widely. She has books in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum and Sheffield and Northampton Universities and has two books in 500 Handmade Books Volume 2.
