DeBorah Beatty, August 4, 2012 (view all comments by DeBorah Beatty)
This is the book that has launched a thousand passions. Complex cloth or art cloth is fabric that has been dyed, painted, distressed, discharged or bleached, beaded, printed, or otherwise embellished and then hung up for all to see and enjoy. Proof that just as with a mixed media painting, it's the artist's voice, not what they chosen to express it that matters.

Until Jane Dunnewold, the concept of a single piece of cloth being a piece of art was relatively unknown. Jane takes you through each process she uses with careful details, great pictures and a commentary of what to expect and how to layer one process on top of another.

This is without a doubt my favorite surface design book.
