5.0 out of 5 stars A very good book for the advanced or beginning fabric artist, 28 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Complex Cloth: A Comprehensive Guide to Surface Design (Paperback)
This book has clear and complete instructions for nearly every technique - dyeing, stamping, stenciling, silk screening, bleach discharge, etc. It's the best source I've seen on bleach discharge, and it has some of the most beautiful examples of combinations of several techniques, for inspiration. This book could be used by a beginner, but it has an immense amount to offer to a more advanced fabric artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book in the field, 30 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Complex Cloth: A Comprehensive Guide to Surface Design (Paperback)
I have a very large collection of books about surface design and fabric dyeing, and this one stands above all the others, even though many of them are very very good. I find myself returning to this book again and again, not just for the excellent instructions, but for the glorious pictures as well. Also, every technique is followed by a series of alternative ideas for using the technique, and at the end of the book is a wonderful series of project plans, not to mention comparisons of various fabric paints and a list of resources. If this book doesn't get your creative juices going, you need taxidermy.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent resource book for fiber artists at all levels, 5 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Complex Cloth: A Comprehensive Guide to Surface Design (Paperback)
Dunnewald's book is outstanding in every way. Directions are clear, organized, and illustrated in step-by-step photographs and in text. A wide variety of contemporary techniques are presented. Wonderful photographs of completed works are found throughout the book. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in textile design and production.

This review is from: Complex Cloth: A Comprehensive Guide to Surface Design (Paperback)
This book gives some really useful and helpful tips especially if you want to work from home. The book itself may have been written awhile back but the techniques are still valid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a great resource, 3 Jan 2013

This review is from: Complex Cloth: A Comprehensive Guide to Surface Design (Paperback)
Even with the many advancements in the world of textile design this book stands out as one of the best resources for techniques. Although published in the mid-90s it is still relevant and should be included as a staple for textile students/tutors.
