Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The first edition of this book (LJ 6/15/84) has long been a standard textbook for students of textile painting, printing, dyeing, and other methods of fabric embellishment. For this edition, the authors have added new information on the safe use of chemical dyes and have revised dyeing procedures to incorporate what they have learned over the past decade about working with chemicals in an environmentally responsible manner. They have also revised the supply source list and made minor corrections and additions throughout the book. Academic and large public libraries that have the first edition will want this one, and libraries lacking that one should definitely add this to their collections.

Surface Design for Fabric

Richard M. Proctor, Jennifer F. Lew


"This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Surface Design for Fabric provides an introduction to a fascinating and varied field of design; the hand application of design to the surface of fabric. Explained here are virtually all of the hand processes used to embellish or alter fabric surfaces. These include direct dyeing, liquid resists, bound resists, direct printing, stencil printing, and needlework. The authors, noted fabric designers and teachers themselves, have organized the book in such a way that it can easily be used by beginners. The presentation is primarily visual, with clear, step-by-step illustrations of each process accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions. At the end of each chapter are photographs of ethnic and contemporary designs that demonstrate the variety of possible effects. This new edition also contains vital information on the safe use of dyes, pigments, and chemical assistants."

Excellent source for surface design. I had bought this book several years ago and misplaced it and was thrilled to find it again.
Fast delivery and book in good condition.
