5.0 out of 5 stars cape dorset sculpture, 30 July 2010
This review is from: Cape Dorset Sculpture (Paperback)
A great book with a very interesting introduction by Terry Ryan. The main body of the text presents a very refreshing insight into how the cape dorset artists have emerged. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential for all textile designers, 30 July 2010
Put simply this is the best book ever written on the subject. I have no idea why it is out of print and suggest it needs to be re issued and should appear on every student reading list. The depth of research into the subject is staggering yet it has been distilled into a visual language that any designer can read and understand quickly and accurately. There is nothing like it in print. The only draw back is the lack of full colour which would make the book not only insanely useful but beautiful. If you can get your hands on one treasure it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 3 Jun 2010
This is one of those books that you will be showing to every visually aware person you know. A must for Fashion, Textile and pattern designers. I'm sure it is already being used by fashion prediction agencies. Stunning.
