Kay Montclare & Museum Masterpieces Pattern Books

Kay Montclare, who sold charts of antique samplers from museums, died
a few years ago. Reports on the web indicate that her grandson sold
all her books to a used bookseller who sold them; thus there is
nothing left.
I have several of her charts, but was intending to buy more. Since
they are now gone and, I assume, the copyright is also, I thought all
of her fans could exchange copies of what they have and trade them.
Anyone interestested?

A word of caution--don't assume copyright died because the author dies.  In
the normal course, it survives for 70 years after the author's death.

Re: Kay Montclare & Museum Masterpieces Pattern Books
The copyright is not gone.  It is in force for many years after the
books were originally printed, even if the author is dead and no one
chooses to print them.

Kay did all her designs from photographs from museum catalogs and such,
so the colors and stitches are not always 100% accurate reproductions.
   Something to be aware of.

There is certainly no problem with trading the originals but her family
might not be happy if they find out lots of copies are being made and
traded.  You can often find her original stuff on eBay.

I was so sorry to learn of your Great Grandmother's passing, Kayedee.  She
really was a very nice, and very talented lady, and is greatly missed
within the needle arts community.  

Could you tell me whether your family has any plans to begin publishing
her work again, or to sell the rights so that someone could continue her
wonderful work?
