Book cover all Stitched

I found this book in the library recently.
Didn't have a chance to look inside so
I went and judged it by its cover instead.
I think it's brilliant!
Book reference:
Campana, F., Campana, H. (2010) Campana Brothers: Complete Works (So Far). Brazil: Rizzoli International Publications
The use of machine stitch is what really works well,
upon this forest green and the simple, but bold, dark blue lettering
its not surprising that reviews on amazon show it to be
an excellent book on the furniture design brothers.
It harnesses the machine running stitch.
One that is simple, but in it is a pattern
of one stitch then a group of thin stitches overlaid upon each other.
Sometimes simple works best when mixed with a little detail -
if it had just been a running stitch I may not have been as impressed by it
and nor would it hasve been as innovative.
Its like they have created a new stitch pattern -
or brought back an old one for a viewing.
