Author(s): The People's Print
This book features 14 original projects that will inspire you to create your own digitally printed textile designs. Digital techniques are inspired by traditional handcrafts such as patchwork and embroidery, and utilize Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Previously the preserve of professional designers or fashion and textile colleges, digital printing is now available in high-street bureaus, where anyone can send a file to be printed on the material of their choice, ready to make and wear.
