"This excellent book on all aspects of Japanese tie-dye has been so influential worldwide that 'shibori' has actually become the term for this field."--Jack Lenor Larsen

"This beautiful book is a classic within the field of textile literature. The information it contains--with clearly written text and wonderful illustrations--has been so useful to artists, students and scholars since it was first published in 1983. It is wonderful that it will now be available as a paperback."--Gillian Moss, Curatorial Chair, Curator of Textiles Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum

"This is the invaluable book that has launched a thousand contemporary shibori artists. Among all the texts in the field of surface design, this is the priceless jewel in the lotus!"--Jason Pollen, President, Surface Design Association, Chair, Fiber Department, Kansas City Art Institute

..".Masterfully organized and rich in detail, Shibori is of great benefit to the student, fiber artist and researcher alike." --Glen Kaufman, Fiber artist, Professor, University of Georgia

"Marvelous... This is the kind of book that every fibre artist would love to have on his library shelves... To my knowledge there is no other treatise in English which explicates this area of textile art. Shibori fills a gap in the literature of textiles."--Tec Hallman, Professor of Textiles, Ontario College of Art and Design
