Photography

We wanted to focus on the textiles side, personally we loved the luxe close ups of how materials can be manipulated to produce designs…

Coming from a textile artist perspective again, if we are into embroidery, print design may have seemed alien to us. However illustrations within this publication reveal how they can be developed into print designs and digitally altered to produce new work. For those wanting to extend their skills, this may be an exciting prospect.

There are of course many other illustrations within this publication. Looking through them all, we felt that they were all of a good quality and visually educational.

What Makes The Book Special?

It has been printed as a large hardback publication, making it one for the coffee table as well as being a helpful resource for art and textile based tutors and students. We imagine this one will be housed in places like university libraries as a valuable reference.

The hand drawn examples printed are also very inspirational. There are plenty of them and could be taken down the embroidery or design route.
