Sounds like a wonderful book. I have quiet a collection of dye/textile books and each one seems to offer something special.
Here are three of my faves and ones that I can really recommend:
Colour by Design by Ann Johnstone:
An oldy but a goody is:
Surface Design for Fabric by Richard M. Proctor and Jennifer F.Lew
and if you like shibori:
The Inventive Art of Japanese Resist Dyeing by Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada.
