Art Cloth: A Guide to Surface Design for Fabric published by Interweave.
Review by Debbie Overton
When textile artist Jane Dunnewold released her first book, Complex Cloth in 1996, it quickly became the bible of surface design for fiber artists. Art Cloth picks up where Complex Cloth left off, showing how to layer processes with the latest products to create stunning cloth for use in a variety of fiber art. Art Cloth updates all the techniques discussed in Complex Cloth plus adds valuable new information from Jane’s years of teaching and continuing work as an artist.
In addition to detailed step-by-step wet media surface design techniques, she demonstrates how the use of color and design contribute to successful layering. She guides and inspires artists to take their art cloth to the next level through sidebars with design tips and exercises that support the technical information. In addition, each technique chapter concludes with project ideas for the skills learned, so anyone working through the book can literally build layers on cloth as each chapter is completed.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced fiber artist, this book will inspire you as you work your way through 176 pages and 500 photographs.
