I love to carving and printing blocks and the book provided some new ideas for me. This is not a "how-to" project book. It is based on a course the artist taught and the book is process and thought oriented , not project based. The book is divided in two parts. Part I is technique. The second part displays work of various artists and discusses their thought process.

OK for a beginner at experimenting if you follow the project ideas. Otherwise skip to the last chapter where you will enjoy the artworks of various pro artists and their commentary. The author is a very experienced artist and teacher. I was really surprised that this book was so "primary" if there is such a thing with experimental work.

Did not like this book. Was not up to expectations.

I am a fan of the author's books for uniquely creative exploration with unusual 21st Century techniques and materials. However, this one disappoints me. The cover is the best/ only new idea about book. The book explores processes I learned back in the 70s. I would say its good for beginner to intermediate exploration but if you have studied fiber art or fine art in any serious way...this book is just too basic.

I am pondering whether to return it. I recommend the author's "Hot Textiles" for truly innovative ideas.

Let me begin this review by telling you what this book isn't: it is not a book of how to techniques. There are no step by step directions on how to create any of the gorgeous pieces in this book. What it is though, is a guide to how you can develop your own textile art. It begins with a section on exploring where ideas come from and then how to create and develop your designs and ideas based on your own sketches, photographs and other collected ephemera. There is a brief discussion about color in textiles and the color wheel that is straightforward and easy to understand. The second part of this book guides you through finding a focus for your work beginning with choosing a subject, interpreting it into a body of work, working in the three-dimension and the challenges associated with creating structure with textiles followed by a discussion regarding scale and things to consider when working with large 3d pieces. The book closes with a discussion about inspiration focusing on the work of 8 artists and where they find theirs and showcases the work of Ruth Issett, Cylde Olliver, Judy Martin, Myriam Tripet, Angie Hughes, Lee Brown, Bobby Britnell, and Gwen Hedley. This is a beautiful book that's very well written and filled with stunning photographs that are impossible not to be inspired by.
This lastest book by hot textiles author is not what it seems. The cover is misleading and the book itself seems misguided. It is more a collection of biographies of artists, if not a bit boring. Although some of the artists work featured is amazing. The book doesn't stack up.
