Encyclopedia Of Camouflage

MIL-STD-09-14-2012

A two volume book set exploring the vast world of camouflage:

Also known as DPM (Disruptive Pattern Material).  These highly visual books chart the history of camouflage from its inspiration in nature, through its adoption by the military, to its current uses in design and popular culture.

Reading the book description I learned a new word; “camoufleur”, which unsurprisingly means someone employed in camouflaging or skilled in the techniques of camouflage.  Tight, I’ll keep that one in the chamber to drop in random conversation sometime for sure.

I should probably pick up this book, considering a good portion of my posts seem like they are going to be camouflage based, it would help minimize the panic when I see a pattern that isn’t woodland, German flectarn, or British DPM.

The book is available for $135 over at Amazon.

While you’re using “camoufleur” I’ll be using DPM and never saying camouflage again!
