About This Item

New York: Van Norstrand Reinhold, 1976. First Edition. Large Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good. 14x10x1. Hanson, Bob. First edition. Jacket edges rubbed, tear to jacket spine base. 1976 Large Hardcover. 272 pp. This luxurious volume is the first to focus exclusively on resist dyeing as an art form. It brings together superb examples from cultures on every continent, and includes the work of many contemporary artist-craftsmen. The extraordinary story of the discovery, development, trade, and importance of these age-old techniques is sensitively told, with keen insights into the relationship of historic and tribal styles to the achievements of the modern dyer. Sumptuously illustrated throughout - including 90 magnificent full-color photographs - the book is literally a museum of the dyer's art throughout the ages. Many of the hundreds of photographs - including those of the world's oldest extant resist-dyed fabric - are published here for the first time.
