Fixed Scale View

The Librarian - Giuseppe Arcimboldo

A "man" made from books and items from the book culture of the times. His cape is a library curtain (used to partition study rooms and protect books from light and dust), his spectacles are book-chest keys, his beard is made of animal tail dusters, and his fingers, grasping the books acquisitively, are bookmarks. The painting mocks those who acquire books for the sake of ownership rather than reading, and is thought to particularly lampoon Wolfgang Lazius, the Hapsburgs' historiographer, who was reputed to steal books when he couldn't get them another way. (about 1562)

On this page, the image is shown at a fixed size (stitches are 2 pixels x 2 pixels). This allows you to compare the relative size of different patterns (other pages scale the images by varying amounts so that they fit the page layout).

You can click "Show regular print pages" or "Show large print pages" to show how the pattern is divided into pages for the two print sizes. The page outlines are red, and the page numbers in the chart are also shown in red. (Charts always start on page 3 of the pattern booklet.) The smaller black grid shows the 10 x 10 blocks of stitches within the pattern. These are always the same. The only difference between the large print and regular print patterns is how many stitches fit on a page. Click "No grid" to hide the grid and page lines.

You can change the colors of the page numbers, grid, and page boundaries to colors that show up better against the pattern picture. The page numbers have a shadow which allows them to show up even if the foreground color matches the pattern in a particular area. Choose background color "none" to remove the grid and shadows.

If you would like to print the image without the Scarlet Quince logo, tabs, etc., choose the grid display you want, then click "Printable version". You may need to specify that the background image is to be printed. Here's how to turn background printing on.
