Mysteries of Ikat Explained Aug. 7 2010
By Jenny Booth - Published on Amazon.com
An interesting and accessible explanation of how to weave ikat in a number of forms. The diagrams showing how to build a warp shifting box and how to manage weft ikat are particularly good. Such a lot of inspiration - possibilities abound.
