Hazel Clark. A5, 32pp. Two thousand years ago woodblocks were being used in the East to print both fabric and paper. In Europe it was not until the middle ages that the first printed textiles were produced. Output remained limited until the importation of Indian chintzes in the seventeenth century encouraged the development of textile printing. This book shows how the industrial revolution led to the creation of a fully fledged industry which is still developing today. It includes: European Origins, Copperplate Printing, Block Printing, Cylinder Printing, Silkscreen Printing. Illustrated with pictures of various designs, patterns, various machines and people at work, etc.
