I've bought about 10-15 printing books in the last year or so. This is by far the nicest and most inspirational. Yes, it is textile printing and stencilling, so slightly more 'crafty', but it has the best and easiest to follow instructions. I can't value it highly enough - you will lose sleep thinking about what you want to do!

Amazing book, full of useful informations about materials and techniques for printing on paper, fabric, walls, wood and so on, with wonderful photographs of finished items and easy-to-follow step-by-step pictures. I loved it! Everything a beginner needs to know about printmaking! It contains: stenciling, screenprinting (two methods), block printing, rubber foam printing, rubber block/linocuts printing, etc.

This book is amazing! The images and designs are fanstastic. I haven't stopped thinking about what I want to print since I bought the book. The only down side is that some of the materials used in the books are quite difficult to find. However,with a bit of determination I think it will be possible to find everything needed.
There are still plenty of projects and ideas which don't require specialist materials.

I would recomend this book to any one interested in printing fabrics. It's well worth the money!

I bought this as I wanted to print onto fabric to make purses and had been hunting for a good guide to techniques. This is perfect. The designs included are lovely and the instructions are clear and accurate, so the results are great! Excellent spiral bound book sits happily to your side while you work without flopping closed. The author describes this as writing the book she wanted but couldn't find, she has thought of it all and I really recommend this if you are a novice like me. I had to hunt for some of the products as it is an american book, but there is a great list of websites and suppliers in the back, so it didn't take too long.
I could print all day and can't wait for my next session!!

I've had this book on my wishlist for a while now and recently had the chance to leaf through it in a book shop - within seconds I knew I had to buy it at last! I have bought so many craft books which are uninspiring, poorly written or lacking detailed instructions - happily, this isn't one of them! It's so refreshing to find a craft book that you want to sit down and read cover to cover. The author writes in a succinct, interesting and coherent way, and she gives a perfect explanation of all the hand printing techniques you might want to try. The projects are simple but effective and the step by step instructions are very clear.

I disagree with the reviewer who said that the book was 'too American' and she was unable to source many of the supplies needed for the projects - I've only had the book a few hours and I've already found online, UK-based sources for everything I need!

I'd recommend this book to anyone creative, especially someone like me who is always looking for a new way to create unique handmade gifts and beautiful things for the home!

I really like the book. VEry good explanations and with lots of explicative pictures.
Its a real bargain for those who want to paint in fabrics without attending any course.

Nice book that makes fabric printing accessible. Perhaps a bit too much on screen printing which requires lots of space to make a mess in, something the average household doesn't have. I like the innovative ways with repeat printing. Goes well with the Alabama Chanin books that require some fabric printing before the garments or accessories are constructed or embellished with stitch. Makes fabric printing a less scary prospect.
