All About Assiut
You can find out more about the book here: http://www.davina.us/blog/cloth-of-egypt/
Assiut is this totally amazing mesh cloth with designs woven in using metal strips.
Dawn has done an academic Master's degree worth of research, and collected or art directed thousands of reference photographs. She has also created seemingly hundreds of examples and sample projects using this fabric for the book.
My illustrations aren't thrilling, but they are important for visually describing technique, and accompanying instructions.
I can't wait until the book comes out!
I can't make it since its in California, but there is going to be a great launch party:
Assiut Fest - Sunday Aug. 24 - Sunnyvale, CA
• Afternoon Workshop with Princess Farhana 3 hours/$40
• Evening Dance Show and Party - 3 hours/ FREE
Join Davina and Friends as we celebrate the release of her book "The Cloth of Egypt."
