Books on fabric design


Last week I shared with you some thoughts on using Spoonflower, a custom-print fabric service.  One of the major problems with my experience is that I didn't know what I was doing at all!  That's not their fault...it's up to me to get educated. 

Genevieve left a comment with a suggestion for a book on fabric design, so besides the online information that I shared with you in that previous post, I thought I might want to look into what other books existed that had good reviews.  These are the ones that rose to the top.  Note, I haven't read any of them...yet.
