Praise for Val Holmes's previous title, Creative Recycling in Embroidery:
"Consider the term embroidery in its broadest sense. French artist (and author of The Machine Embroiderer's Workbook, 1992, and Encyclopedia of Machine Embroidery, 2003) Val Holmes re-creates the 1970s concept of recycling into a host of techniques and ideas and a handful of projects that experienced stitchers will welcome. It's heavy on the ideas, such as dismantling an embellished garment and reassembling it for a more perfect, uniquely decorated fit; or the use of patchwork in inventing items fabricated out of plastics or metal. It also emphasizes a variety of techniques, many taking advantage of miracle materials like Aquabond (a water-soluble fabric with one sticky side) and crystal strands, synthetic fibers that fuse together when ironed. Full-color photographs of finished recyclables enhance the half-dozen projects--a cushion, makeup bag, concertina book--giving needleworkers inspiration that will last a literal lifetime." - Barbara Jacobs

Caveat - I have done some printing but I'm not terribly experienced so some of my enthusiasm might be caused by my naiveté. If you have a lot of experience or have a degree in printing I dare say there is a thing or two for you here, too. There is a wonderful section on how to use one color for the valleys (impressions) and another color for the relief areas that allows you to print two colors simultaneously, unlike silk screening. Further, once you have your prints there is much info regarding the embellishment of the print such as stitching, felting, etc. I can hardly wait to begin playing with many of her ideas and have asked my husband to make a flower/leaf/print press. I have room for that!
