World Textiles - A Visual Guide to Traditional Techniques
World Textiles - A Visual Guide to Traditional Techniques
Gillow, John and Sentance, Bryan

Thames & Hudson, 1999. 240 pages. Previous owner's name on the end page.

This work illustrates the whole range of traditional handmade textiles from all corners of the globe. Eight sections cover every aspect of materials and techniques, each giving a succinct summary of characteristics, making and geographical distribution, accompanied by hundreds of colour illustrations and drawings. Non-loom and loom-woven textiles, painted and printed, dyed, sewn, embroidered and embellished techniques are all covered, as well as the materials themselves.
