    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?
