Product Description

Review

This is a book all crafters should have on their bookshelf. If you have ever struggled with colour, and let's face it, most people do - let this book be your guide. It's for all levels of crafters from beginner to experienced and will no doubt improve your work as colour is often the key that holds a piece together. I like the spiral bound format - it lays flat whilst you experiment. You can conquer your fear fo colour with this brilliant book.-KarenPlatt.co.uk

Format: Hardcover-spiral
When you do any City & Guilds course you always seem to start off with the colour wheel and a friend recommended this book. I am sure there must be many other books on colour but this is so easy to read, so beautifully displayed I am not going to bother with any other purchases. At the back of the book there are the "colour tools" which help you isolate various sections on the colour wheel. Also there are a range of colours for each hue family. The book suggests you can use the sheets when you are shopping to ensure that the colours you buy are the ones you want. What a brilliant idea - but don't lose them!!! Instead of taking the book to Ally Pally last year I tore out the colours I wanted for my C & G project and lost one. Perhaps I need another copy!

A great book for any textile person who wants to know more about colours and how to mix them. It will take a long time for me to take it all in but it is still the sort of book that will always be useful however long I have it.
