Something Totally New and Different

I rarely come across something totally different in the way of stitching, but Janet Brandt has come up with something totally new--the art of Zhen Zian Bao, or the Chinese folk art of thread books with paper folded style inserts.  I think the sampler reproduction fans will go wild with this Chinese version of smalls.

Here is a bit about the Ruth Smith/Gina Corrigan book on this art.
