Great for textile artists
on 19 February 2011
This book guides the reader in using lines in their embroidery and textile art. However, the book covers much more than that, it covers many techniques such as cold water dyeing, mono printing and tells you how to make different fibrous surfaces. The techniques alone would be enough to get your creative juices flowing.
The remainder of the book tells you about a particular style of interpreting lines into textile works and then shows you some of the author's own work in this style, detailing her inspiration. It then showcases works by other textile artists to show you other looks that can be achieved.
The book has detailed text and good quality photography throughout. It is not a book for beginners but any textile artist would struggle not to be inspired by it.
