This booklet was issued as promotion for American Thread Mercerized Branded Threads.   Which means, of course, these are the brands called in the different patterns.     I've scanned this book to a PDF file, and it is available in my shop, should you wish to create some of these of your own.   

So, what do you think?    Lovely patterns, great artistic drawings, a delightful vintage book.
