LARSEN, Jack Lenor. The Dyer's Art : ikat, batik, plangi. New York, et al :Van Nostrand Reinhold Limited, (1976). First Printing. Pp (11),[12]-272. I llustrated. Index. Double Column. 4to, blue cloth, gilt to front board and spine. "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 themodern 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 resistdyed fabric - are published here for thefirst time. The authors present resist dyeing in its many ramifications, w ith full discussion and documentation of ikat (fabrics woven from resist-dyed fabrics), plangi (tie-dye, fold-dye, and stitch-dye fabrics), and batik (fabrics patterned by the application of liquefied wax, paste, starch or other substances to resist dye). Displayed are the classic batiks of Java, West Africa and the Congo, along with the great ikats of Turkistan, Indonesia, Southeast Asia, and many others. Although history, style, and technique are thoroughly analyzed, the emphasis is always on aesthetics and ingenuity." (from the dj).

"While this book makes no pretence to be a detailed bibliography, in the bibliophile's sense of the term, it aims toprovide a useful list of references both for historical and practical use. Although it would not be true to say that there existed no bibliography re lating to the subject of dyeing, as an excellent list was produced by Mr. Jules Garcon in 1893, with this exception those lists which have been compiled contain relatively few entries and are mostly out of print and difficultto obtain. The art of dyeing does not, therefore, possess anything in the nature of a comprehensive list of books published since the beginning of printing to the present time." - from the dustjacket.

MAIRET, Ethel. Vegetable Dyes : Being a book of Recipes and other information useful to the Dyer. London: Faber and Faber, (1952). Eleventh Pritning. Pp. (4),1-68. 8vo, grey cloth with red titles to spine. "Hand-weaving had been entirely superseded by the power l;ooms of Manchester in 1908 when Mrs Mairet rebelled against this annihilation of an essential art. She set up her own loom and has not only earned her living at it ever since but, through her pupils and imitators, has been the means of reviving the trade in allparts of the Empire. Men and women like their clothes and furnishings in m any colours, hence it is advisable for the weaver also to be the dyer. It is natural that he should look for his traditional colours in their native places rather than buy those from the laboratory conjured out of coal by thechemist. A visitor to Mrs Mairet's Weaving Room at Ditchling will find the dyeing shed an important adjunct. Here are lichens from the wilder parts o f Wales or Scotland, bracken, heather, gorse ... and in the garden a patch of weld )wild mignonette). And indigo, the most sensitive of all the dyes (but that comes from India). And madder (from France) for her brilliant reds. Vegetable dyes can always give standard for good colours and therefore the craft should still be carried on in small workshops." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. Wool, Silk, Cotton and Linen; 2.
