From inside cover flap " Ikat, the original book published in 1980 was hailed as "the most authortative volume written on the subject." This edition is even bigger and better. Van Gelder's revised, updated and expanded book includes chapters on ikat knitting and shifu,(the art of japanese paper spinning and weaving) the hallmarks of ikat - pattern, color, and detail - are gloriously illustrated in the "gallery of ikat" photo section..............
Additional highlights include: historical information ~ design considerations ~ equipment requirements ~ projects with step-by-step instructions ~ photographs of contemporary ikats"
This is an essential book for anyone interested in ikat
