Batsford, 2008, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good
Bright glossy pages with no tears or markings; moderate creasing to upper edge of jacket, a few light surface marks. Wow. This is one inspirational book. The cover is very intriguing and whets the appetite for a book that does not fail to deliver. This beautifully presented book shows you how to take an image from photocopy to painting and how to transfer it into textile art. Projects include books to bangles and much more besides. The methods used are uncomplicated and are therefore suitable for beginners or experienced stitchers alike. No technical knowledge is necessary to follow the precise instructions. Having produced an image by whatever means, this book then shows you how to transform that image by hand or machine embroidery. I love the creativity of this book, Maggie Grey is a true guiding light and will boost your own imagination to produce exciting pieces of textile art. This is a fascinating side of stitching, fully explored in this book . My own ideas on this have only just begun to form after I saw a textile artist printing on silk through an inkjet printer. My imagination was fired and this book presents me with the know-how to complete the projects running around in my head. This is a very comprehensive book, covering many techniques. I find it invaluable. (Reader review) 128 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fashion, Fabrics & Style; ISBN/EAN: 9781906388027. Inventory No: dscf8690.
