This review is from: Basics Textile Design 01: Sourcing Ideas: Researching Colour, Surface, Structure, Texture and Pattern (Paperback)
I really wish I'd had this book when I was a textile design student! It sums up everything my lecturers were trying to teach me in clear language and logical sequence. The pictures are inspiring and the captions and descriptions even more so. This book is full of tips and makes me want to grab some paper and go for it. It is written in a really kind and friendly tone - not snobby or pretentious at all. I've always been daunted by the beginning process of design and dreaded blank sketchbook pages. This book gives practical tips and lessons on how and where to start, what to think about, and makes the whole process seem fun again!
