Mostly about digital printing, with a nod to other methods of printing. A decent overview of the topic; there are other books to get more specific, but sometimes you need a primer for the whole field. It will not teach you how to do all of this, but it's a field guide, just like the title says.

Excellent and unexpectedly comprehensive introduction to the process of fabric design and printing. Highly accessible and succinct.
