From the Publisher: Textile designers are beginning to realize the creative potential of digital textile design and are fast catching up with graphic designers who have taken to working digitally. New digital textile-printing technology is enabling designers to work with an almost unlimited palette of colours to produce work of staggering detail in relatively short timescales. Written specifically for textile designers, Digital Textile Design provides the know-how for students and professionals who wish to use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator as design tools. A series of inspirational tutorials, presented in step-by-step format, guide the reader through the process of creating designs that will be suited to both the traditional textile production process, and to the new industry of digital printing onto fabric. Against the backdrop of the development of digital print, the book discusses how designers can access this new technique, looks at the work of those currently exploring its possibilities, and also features the craft of embellishment that is being used to offset the apparent flatness of print.

I grow fonder and fonder of the Portfolio Skills Series on fabric, sewing and pattern work. This book shows examples of a wide variety of digital design (mostly photographic) and follows with Photoshop tutorials that address motifs, repeats and color choices. Just like the title says! Not a long course in photography or digital manipulation, but a very targeted and very useful text. This is damn fine.
