THE reference book on indigo March 2 2013
By Paula Bernard - Published on Amazon.com
A magical topic. Full of fascinating facts and inspiring images from the world over, this is my reference book on indigo. Keep coming back to it for history and ideas on colour, plants and organic processes, dyeing techniques and patterning, cultural traditions. I lost my original copy, and was delighted to find this latest edition has a fascinating new chapter on blue jeans and the future of natural indigo - currently being revived in France, India, Japan and many other countries serious about ethical, ecologically sound, sustainable production. Also a really important education project with young people of Harlem NYC for which Balfour Paul was consultant, initiated by Yo Yo Ma's Silk Road team - connecting everyday blue jeans to history of world trade, including slavery.

Thoroughly researched and documented with references Jan. 27 2014
By Fiberguy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are really interested in the influence this one dyestuff has had historically and culturally, this book is an excellent source. The photographs and illustrations are great and the layout and quality of the printing is quite good.

The writing is academic and a bit ponderous. There are levels of detail that many of us, who just want to become better informed, could do without. There is also very little material on the current state of the art for current indigo usage in industrial production. We are presented a lot of material about native and small lot dyeing that could have been placed into better perspective with at least a photograph and short write-up of a modern continuous denim dye range as a contrast.

An informative book, but certainly NOT light reading!
