Synopses & Reviews
"There's a wealth of information in this book about mixed media techniques which you could incorporate into textile items, although they are illustrated mostly on paper. There's an excellent section on many different types of printing with striking designs. They include screen, monotype, collograph, relief and sun printing. Every chapter has interesting examples using the different processes. Included are some projects making small books and collages, greeting cards and a calendar. This book would be an excellent resource for City and Guilds students." - Fabrications
"This book is all about fresh ideas using printmaking and mixed media on fabric and paper. All the usual printing techniques are explored and there are lots of fun projects to try your hand at them. I like the monotype placemats and the ideas for sun printing. This is a book that will open the door for you to explore many interesting ideas." - KarenPlatt.co.uk
