Looking For a Book

Natural Processes in Textile Art: From Rust Dyeing to Found Objects by Alice Fox

It was with great interest I read the post that talked about dyeing with natural stuff.  Like leaves and rust and stuff lying  around int he streets.  We all know what a collector of such objects I am.  And when someone leaves their crane in my driveway, how i will rush out and pull rust from the bucket.  

So when the post gave me the name of a great book about rust dyeing and tannins and stitching leaves together for art's sake, I WANTED that book!

Alas, it is listed in Amazon for $65!  But it is out of print.  Aughhh!

So.......does anyone have one to sell?  That  you no longer want?  That you thought you wanted to do but decided it wasn't for you?  That you have two of?

I would love to purchase it!

Or trade, I have the book by India Flint about what plants to use to dye what color.  It happens that none, or very few, of the plants are in our area here in Louisiana.  So it would be better with someone out west/east or north of me.

  1. HI! I tried my favorite used book store on a whim - and they have one! $43.50 - Good Luck

  2. So nice of Beth to find you a copy! And 43 bucks Is a lot better than 65
    Although that still Seems Like a lot but I'll bet you will get a lot out of it. Hopefully you will write to us about the good bits and we won't need to buy it -lol!

  3. Just as an aside, did you try interlibrary loan so you can look at it before you invest? I've done that and was soooo glad to discover that the project in the book I was interested in making was the only one I liked! It would give you an option of looking before you invest.

  4. Everyone else found you one so there you go! Lol


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
