This GREAT book has now been republished since 2006 with COLOUR photos, showing the different types of fabrics available, and to distinguish the Kangas from these. Kikoys - Kitenge - Pareos and Kangas are a very similar size, so this book will definitely benefit users of these other fabrics also.
A few changes have been made inside the book to reflect the newer uses - for example - Kangas are now being used as COMPUTER - COVERS !
And some detail has been added about the author and artists - and the reason why and how the Book came about - very interesting !
The new publishers also altered the cover slightly to make it look different from the pirated copies that were around.
The publisher is HARIASTAMP - based in Nairobi, Kenya. Email hariastamp@gmail.com....Website www.hariastamp.com
