ADVANCED TEXTILE DESIGN. PREFACE THE designing and colouring of cloths, which are composed of one series of warp and one series of weft threads, are exhaustively treated in the accompanying book, entitled "Textile Design and Colour, Elementary Weaves and Figured Fabrics." This book forms a continuation of the subject, and deals in an equally complete manner with compound and special cloths in which two or more series of threads are employed in one or both directions, or which are produced in special methods. There is no separate section on colour, but the principles upon which colours are applied to the various classes of cloths are described and illustrated.
