Courier Corporation, May 25, 2007 - Design - 48 pages
From an ancient craft practiced by generations of Chinese folk artists come more than 280 authentic designs. Enjoy lush florals, mythical beasts, graceful wildlife, fish, birds, symbols of longevity and happiness, and other traditional motifs, all created from hand-cut stencils that have been transferred onto cloth dyed a deep blue. The source of this azure background: the indigo plant, which has been cultivated in China for thousands of years. Finely rendered and crisply reproduced, the wealth of illustrations in this unique treasury can be used to enhance a myriad of art, craft, and graphics projects, and will provide fresh inspiration for textile design.
