A field Guide to Fabric Design by Kimberly Kight (click here for a link to her Blog ‘True Up’) is well worth reading for anyone interested in finding out more about this fascinating field. It is suited to those with a casual interest through to professionals looking to expand their expertise. It covers all the basics of fabric design from design and colour, types of motif, creating repeats by hand on the computer to printing and even selling your designs!
The book is really well laid out with clear headers, images and tutorials throughout the book. Scattered throughout are question and answer sections from some of the US’s leading printed textiles designers. This book talks about the US market but the principals are the same wherever you are and I would highly it.
