A very handsome, very slick sampler of graphic promotions. Liles consolidates the lore of traditional dyers with his own first- hand experience to present both a history of natural dyes and a practical manual for using pre-synthetic-era processes on all the natural fibers--cotton, linen, silk, and wool. The recipes provide detailed instructions on how to collect ingredients--flowers, seeds, insects, wood, minerals--prepare the dyevat, troubleshoot, and achieve specific shades.
