The collection of contemporary printed fabrics presented in this book were sourced from manufacturers around the world: they reflect both traditional and current African design influences... The core of the book consists of close-up, near full page photographs of 109 colourful printed fabrics; the print details can be clearly seen. A brief description accompanies each photo, often including a reference to where the fabric was printed and for what market. The book's accompanying CD contains photographs of all 109 featured fabrics... This book will appeal to lovers of African design and anyone looking for a fresh approach to their own textile design. -- Dawn Willey, New Forest Guild * The Journal for Weavers, Spinners & Dyers *
