Antique shop find

Last weekend we headed out to take a walk only to be thwarted by a huge crowd there. So we wandered over to a nearby antique mall in LaGrange, IL. We used to go antiquing most weekends, but it's become a rare activity now. I found this vintage button card. The buttons are wood. There's a picture of a woman under the buttons, very hard to see, but intriguing.
But this was my very happy find--a book about the embroidered clothing of, I think, Turnovsky. I think it's Czech.
They had me with the gorgeous cover.
And then I saw the two huge pages of patterns in the back cover.
There's loads of detail on the interior spreads.  I'm having fun researching and puzzling it out.
