This book of 'Examples of Needlework' was conceived by the venetian Giovanni Antonio Tagliente and published by Giovanantonio da Sabbio and his brothers in Venice, Italy. First published in 1527, it wass one of the first and very original textile pattern books to be issued in Italy after the emergence of the genre in Germany in 1523. Tagliente also includes a long description on how the patterns could be transferred onto textile substrates.
