A very good book with loads of information about textiles, how it is made and what is and can be used for. A must for everyone interested in textiles!
Textbook for one of my daughters classes, she like it so much she is keeping it as a reference book.
I used this book in college. The author was also my prof. so it was a required text. Well worth it! This text takes textile science and breaks it down into small easy read chapters with review questions. There are plenty of figures to look at as picture references to help you understand concepts and fiber shapes. My only downfall with the book is that I wish it had some color pictures.
Our granddaughter was a student at the Art Institute in Chicago and this was a required book which we helped her out by purchasing for her for class.
