Included is a relatively comprehensive list of some of the more accessible dye plants of North America and the cultural West.

Soft cover with black and white illustrations throughout.

Edition: 1976.

Condition: This beaut's aged with grace. Name of the former owner is written on the title page, and the inside cover has an old price tag.

*Keep in mind that some of the recommended mordants have since been found to be toxic, such as chrome and copper, and therefore we of course recommend against those methods.
