Fabric Printing

£7.99

Product description

From the Blurb;

"Fabric printing, as studied in this book, is the craft in which parts of a stick, a potato or a piece of linoleum are cut away so as to leave in relief a design which is then transferred to the fabric by the raised parts being covered in ink or dye and pressed on to the material.

The aim of the author has been to explain the main principles of the craft in as simple a manner as possible, and to this end he has been able to draw upon his teaching experience. This experience has convinced him that learning the craft develops in the student imagination and artistic taste, whilst at the same time giving the practical benefits of the proper handling of tools and the production of useful, as well as beautiful, articles."

Excellent pages with some edge-wear. Includes dust-jacket in fair condition. It is an ex-library book with a library stamp in the front flyleaf.
