Antique Italian needlecraft magazines

Today I’m just going to point y’all to Italian Needlecrafts, which (in addition to selling Italian needlework supplies) has available free scans of a number of editions of two magazines from the early 1900s: Il Ricamo Illustrato and Il Ricamo. They contain all kinds of embroidery (cutwork, surface embroidery, drawn thread, cross-stitch, and more). I think the cutwork below is my favorite pattern from the magazines (it’s such an unusual subject for cutwork).

Il Ricamo Illustrato: August 15, 1926
