5.0 out of 5 stars Should be re-published! July 15 2004
Format:Hardcover
I bought this title thinking it would give me an inexpensive insight into the hand printing of fabrics and I wouldn't be out much if it turned out so-so.
It turns out to be a great book on the various dyes, dyeing techniques, and printing techniques for craftspeople. The author speaks in an informative, educated, down-to-earth style that reveals his background as a hands-on college professor at Bath Academy of Arts in the late 50's early 60's. As an Advisor on the UN Technical Assistance Board, his appreciation of traditional African Asian and European techniques is demonstrated in his coverage of these methods as well as more contemporary ones. Despite the black and white photographs, this is a vivid account, rich with the how-to's and insights that you need to succeed. I recommend it. An enjoyable read and a great deal for under $3.00!
