Format: Paperback
I've started doing batik just a couple of months ago, and this is the third book I have bought from Amazon on this subject. I think this is the best of them three because it has very very clear instructions on every project the author suggests, great photos of each step, she shows very clearly a lot of techniques to use on different things (check out the lamp shade it's great)and I think most important of all she is very generous about her knowledge of batik, explaining everything that could happen if you do this or that, and with every day words, not all the technical-chemical mumbo jumbo i've found in other books.
One last thing, check out her galley in the book: it's really beautiful!

I have purchased several books on batik, this is the best of the lot. Book has very clear, step by step instructions and includes simple projects such as paper, pillow case, and works up to more complex projects. Each project is accompanied with photographs, so its pretty easy to follow and understand the process. Also nice color photo of each finished project.

The book arrived today, and I was really curious about the one bad review. Even Dharma Trading (my heros!!) thought this book was great. I've only been considering doing Batik for about, oh, a week, so I know nothing about it! This book seems to go into minute detail about how you use the tools, get the effects, etc etc. I can hardly wait to try it out! So, I'm not at all sure why it got a bad review. Yes, it teaches by walking you throughh projects, but obviously you can apply the knowlege any which way you want. I would very much recommend it as a beginner's book, which is even in the title for heavens sake.

The book is informative and inspiring. The pictures show what can be done, and how to do it. I would recommend this to anyone interested in batiks.

This book is going to cost me a lot of money! She makes it look so easy and beautiful, that I have to try it. I have not paid much attention to batik because it did not seem very artistic. This book has changed my opinion and I can hardly wait to get started.
