Great News for textile enthusiasts!

The long awaited printed textile book Wearable Prints, 1760-1860, History, Materials and Mechanics, by Susan W. Greene, is finally in print, and will begin shipping January 28, 2014.

This is a very special book, with valuable information for anyone working with textiles of this period. It will be the standard "go-to" book for determining whether a modern printed fabric is appropriate for use in reproduction garments. It will also be valuable in identifying original printed textiles and learning the processes required to create them.

The retail list price is $100.00 but Amazon is listing it for pre-sale, so please click through to the right and check out the detailed information.

This beautiful 600 page hardback is in limited quantity and it is doubtful it will be reprinted for many years.

 Please support Susan Greene's years of research on this project.

Be sure to get your copy! Don't delay!

 I appreciate your click through from our web site.
