i’ve received two great books recently––
first, the fundamentals of printed textile design by alex russell, is a fantastic in depth guide for those interested in working professionally in textiles. i get lots of emails with questions about pursuing a career in textile design, and now i will suggest this book.
the second book, menus for chez panisse, was a nice surprise since i’ve admired the hand carved and printed designs of the famous berkeley restaurant for so long. the book is a collections of forty years of artwork by patricia curtain.
both books would make really nice gifts for those interested in printing.
