9780130985484: Fabric Reference, 3rd Edition

For introductory courses in Textiles, courses in Fashion Design/Production, Fashion Merchandising, Visual Merchandising, Interior Design, and Costume Studies. Fabric Reference presents a complete and up-to-date source of the highly technical basics of textile science, from fibers to finished fabrics. Specially prepared graphics, illustrations, comparison tables, and flow charts make the process of creating modern fabrics clear to both students and instructors. Key terms (including trademarks) are emphasized, and practical applications such as care, selection for various uses, comfort in cold or hot weather, safety from UV radiation, and conservation topics are all discussed more fully than in other texts. A unique companion fabric dictionary/swatchbook (Fabric Glossary) is available.

From the Publisher:

In Fabric Reference, Humphries has created a comprehensive, up-to-date guide to fabric principles and behaviors. The book traces the elements of fabric construction. Fabric performance, a very technical subject, is presented in an accessible, non-technical language, assuming little or no prior knowledge of the subject.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: Humphries traces the elements of fabric construction and performance, often very technical subject matter, in an accessible, non-technical language, assuming little or no prior knowledge of the subject. Key Topics: The book covers the topics treated in most other books plus areas that are important to today's textile student, like assessment of fabrics and ecology, and environmental concerns. It combines the clarity and brevity required to serve as a valuable, in-study and on-the-job reference, often presenting material in condensed formats, including summaries or comparisons.
