Author Eloise Piper introduces readers to the marvelous possibilities of the ancient art of batik. An Indonesian method of hand-printing textiles, batik uses wax to produce an astounding array of patterns on fabric by keeping predetermined sections free of dye. Due to growing interest in the art, Piper has designed her book to help beginners get started. Includes a gallery of traditional work from Southeast Asia, India and China along with more cutting-edge designs from Europe and North America.
