Latest issue

Decoration means something different to everyone, in this issue we take embroidery in all its modern and ancient guises as our starting point with pieces on Opus Anglicanum and Alice Archer. We end up however in the costume department; gazing at props and puppets made for film and television, the library; considering the moral implications of embellishment, the pyramids and the disco; taking a moment to reflect on the history of the sequin.
