Hi!

    I'm looking for information on embroidered book covers.  I have a
vague memory of seeing a reference to a bible cover embroidered by Q.
Elizabeth I as a small child, but I can't lay my hands on it.  I am
particularly interested in the Tudor/Elizabethan time period, but I'll
take anything.  Was it only bibles that were covered?  What embroidery
styles were used?  Is that the only piece out there, or are there more?

Thanks!,
