VINE VOICEon 3 April 2010
This fact packed book has plenty to say. It is not really a how-to book but you will find some drafts that you can take straight to the loom. There are many other tips that can directly apply to your skills. However, this book is primarily a travel book; we are carried through different cultures to see how the are similar:
North America -The Navajo
The Middle East - the Bedouin
West Africa - Narrow-strip weaving
South-East Asia - Indonesian Textiles
East -Asia, the Islands of Japan - Kasuri resist dyeing
South Asia - Inlay weaving of Nepal
Central America - Brocaded motifs from Guatemala
South America - Peruvian tapestry weaving

There are many dolor pictures of finished product with descriptions of what you are looking at. There are also many diagrams and hand drawn images.

I am just getting into dying and still using Kool-Aid. However, for people interested in colors in general and who find this book interesting I suggest you read "A perfect Red".

A Perfect Red: Empire, Espionage, and the Quest for the Color of Desire
