Harvesting Color How to Find Plants and Make Natural Dyes, by Rebecca Burgess
Breathtaking colour photography illustrates the pages of this book which feature 36 dyeplants (some of which are grown in the UK) and easy to follow information on how to produce colour from them. The author has also included a selection of seasonal knitting projects.

Our buyer's comments: On first examination, this book is disappointing to the European reader, as many of the plants used for dyeing seem to be particularly North American. However, many of these plants are available in our gardens (fennel, hollyhock and zinnias) or available from George Weil & Sons Ltd (logwood, indigo, cochineal). The presentation is easy and after deciding how many dyes are obtainable, the North American bias of the book becomes unimportant.
