My best tips for doing double running stitch (used in reversible blackwork) are at:  http://www.skinnersisters.com/double/

My recommendation for a beginner's book is Marian Scoular's Why Call it Blackwork

My favorite threads for black embroidery:  Texere's Shantung Silk; Madeira Silk; Splendor by Rainbow Gallery; FyreWorks by Rainbow Gallery: Gutterman's silk sewing thread or Anchor Floss.
