Book Description
This is the first comprehensive survey in colour of textile art and production worldwide, from prehistory to the present day. It is both an authoritative work of reference and a visual delight, ranging from the Far East to the Americas and form Africa to Scandinavia, including Egyptian artefacts dating from 3000 BC and contemporary craft and furnishings. The book opens with an expert guide to the nine basic textile techniques, embracing rug-weaving, tapestry and felt and bark cloth. Each is clearly explained, using line drawing and close-up colour details from actual textiles, to show how people from many different traditions have made and decorated cloth through the centuries.
