For your study of natural colors on fabric:
WILD COLOR by Jenny Dean is a marvelous book to kick start one's study of natural dye techniques and color palettes.
BRILLIANT COLOURS by Cheryl Kolander, doyen of natural dyeing, is another book of interest if one is interested in developing a very personal connection with natural colors. Hers is the very first book I read on natural colors and it carried me away on her tales of color to a fairytale land. Colors talk to her, and it is fascinating to listen in.
