If you happen to have eucalyptus trees, poultry and compost heaps in your back yard, and be convinced of the dangers of microwaved food and any chemical dyes on clothes, you will find this book very useful. Otherwise it will be more for reading than for practical use. But still interesting. ( )

India Flint is a designer, artist, writer and sheep farmer. Her work has been greatly influenced by her extensive travels – from Melbourne to rural Austria to Montreal. She is known for the development of the highly distinctive eco-print, and ecologically sustainable plant-based printing process giving brilliant colour to cloth. Flint has been working with plant dyes for more than 20 years and she has artwork in collections and museums in Australia, Latvia, and Germany. She produces and sporadically exhibits a range of hand-worked salvage clothing under the label ‘prophet of bloom’, as well as designing and making plant-dyed costumes for theatre and dance. She currently lives in South Australia.
