Format: Paperback
This is a lovely book covering all you need to know about the subject, very good descriptions and photographs, well presented. Please note, it contains almost wholly North American species of fungi and lichen not European.

It would be best used on the East Coast of N. America 7 Aug 2010
By K. Power - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The vast majority of the species in this book are found only on the east coast. Makes it very disappointing to this west coast resident. Unfortunately it is the only book I could find of its type. I will be using it as a reference for my own mushroom dying experiments. One of my more nit picky complaints is that it doesn't mention whether the particular mushroom is mycorrhizal or not. This is important to me because I want to grow the dye mushrooms, and you can't do that with mycorrhizal ones.

So, it's okay, a little disappointing, but okay.

Great field guide to mushrooms for dyeing 7 July 2003
By "besseae" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book does not give much information on how to dye with mushrooms, however, it is the absolute best field guide to mushrooms used for dyeing to date. Each mushroom is described in detail, with an accompanying color photograph and the colors that it yields. This book is a must have for mushroom dyers.

A true Field Guide 12 Aug 2006
By C. Gee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A short introduction that shows and explains dyeing technique with lots of superb photographs. The meat of this book is the detailed field guide to mushrooms with a full set of color photographs. Proper keys are here, good index, glossary and bibliography. Superb publication with all the details needed to do the job.

Mushrooms for colors.........fantastic 29 Oct 2011
By Carolyn Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have bought and used this book for many years. It is a great book for reference or for fun. You will be amazed at the colors you can obtain from Mushrooms. I have been dyeing with Mushrooms for over 25 years, and this book just added more information for my passion. A good addition to my stable of books used for learning and teaching about Natural Dyes.
