Library Journal Review

Pattern sourcebooks have been popular with crafters since the mid-19th century. MacCarthy (Decorative Stencils for Your Home) here compiles a personal selection of line drawings of historic patterns representing many cultures and many media, from ceramics to wall paintings. Similar to clip art, the individual motifs may be photocopied, enlarged, or otherwise adapted for the user's own projects. Color photographs of sample projects are included, but there are no step-by-step instructions. Motif sources are listed at the end of the book. A good selection for crafts collections.
