Format: Paperback
A very nice, well illustrated book, though not specifically what I was looking for. I wanted a book that addressed supplemental weft (weaving) and subsequent dyeing to produce Shibori.
This books strictly addresses the different techniques(folding, twisting, dyeing) used to achieve a certain look. More advanced than tie-dye, but similar in approach. Would be a good reference for someone getting involved in Surface Design and Fabric manipulation. Worth the price.

Someone who wanted a strong and exhaustive overview of ofshibori told me that he was disappointed by this book, as it is fairlylimited in scope. However, I enjoyed the book very much for what it is. It includes a number of lovely examples of things that are possible with shibori. You will need another book to tell you about the dyes themselves, but most people interested in this book will already have at least one such dyers' book already. This book is well worth its relatively modest price.

Format: Paperback
I recieved this book for Christmas, and was truly sorry I had placed it on my wish list....I found this book very simplistic,poorly researched and most of all it presented terrible examples of finished projects. A real "Faux pas" No mention ot the long Japanese history for this technique, or examples of the many exquisite traditional pieces.........This is not even good enough for the library.......They should have saved the trees@

Surely there are better, more detailed books on shibori. I paid more than the current Amazon price, and I wish I had spent my money on one of the other (more expensive) books. I suspect I will donate my copy to the public library for those who have no prior knowlege of resist dyeing, or those who would like to see what they are getting before they buy.
