5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 15 Jan 2012
This book is an exceptional volume - it has a wealth of contextual detail and will enhance/ refresh opinions regarding the place of textiles in our world. The range of images and research is vast, and I keep dipping in and reading passages that really extend my understanding and enjoyment. I have recommended this book to my students and would suggest any artist or design technologist involved with education acquires their own copy.
Beverley Gordon's seminal text on Feltmaking, published decades ago but no longer in print , is another book worth searching out in public library collections

4.0 out of 5 stars non-combining veggie - made less scary, 7 Sep 2009
My husband has recently decided to embark on a new eating regime - which before this book clarified things was annoying and defeating. Since reading the protein/starch chapter I have been able to manage to fit his eating in with the rest of the family. I have yet to fully grasp the Acid and Alkali chapter; but for people new to vegan or vegetarianism the recipes at the back are clear and easy. The only shortfall with the book is the the lack of specific data regarding calorie consumption - which has been an issue in this household because non - combining, non-dairy is great if you want to loose weight but not if you are trying to eat 2000+ calories a day. More substansive advice on this would have been greatly appreciated.
