There is so much in this book to learn - it is angled at digital printing of surface patterns but does cover other printing methods in good detail. It covers the main players in digital printing retailing (like Spoonflower) - as well as gives good instruction on how to create different pattern types (such as repeat patterns, random patterns etc) suitable for printing.
It also has some really great interviews with a range of designers, some of whom I am aware of, some of whom were new to me - always a good thing to get variety.
I would definitely recommend this to people looking to take a step up from basic fabric printing to creating commercial, usable fabrics for selling.
p.s. I almost forgot to mention that the binding on this book is textured and I love it. It 'told' me even before I opened it: "I'm special!".
was really not enough for me. If you are a true beginner
I'm sure you'd get alot out of this book!

Nice quality book with linen cover (my cover showed up a little warped, but probably just a fluke). Great book for someone thinking about fabric design and just getting started. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Melissa Nobbs

Far too many interviews in the book. I don't care about that. Would have preferred those pages were filled with more actual education.Published 14 months ago by K. Fowler
