A very comprehensive and thorough book.
Ann Milner has thought carefully about addressing and organising this book for the beginner, but it's very detailed and there's plenty of detail and recipes for the more experienced.
The book covers natural and chemical dyes, and discusses many types of fibre. It discusses creative ideas and techniques such as spray and resist, shibori, kasuri and batik, and has a chapter about understanding colour.
A detailed reference as well as an inspirational book.
