Working, Working, Working 

Now it's working on new designs!!! I'm currently transforming this little chart booklet from the 1867-1868 Paris World's Fair into usable designs. These little accordion fold booklets were often handed out as promotional items or sold as souveniers at such events. We've developed a habit of calling them Sajou booklets because the publishing company Sajou was a prolific provider of them. This one happens to be by A. Rouyer, a company still publishing stitchery books in France. It appears all four designs are intact (on eight folds) but the back cover is missing. Watch this space for progress reports.
