Transforming Fabrics; by Carolyn Dahl - $45.95

The fourth comprehensive book introduced this year. Besides the usual dyeing, marbling, screening segments, this book teaches about Shibori (Japanese tie-dye), Gyotaku (fish printing), background washes, devore (burn-out with Fibre-Etch), stencil stitching, braiding and compression techniques. One very cool technique is the rain patterning. This technique harnesses the rain. I think this book really stands out, if you are looking more for patterning with dyes instead of paints
