Never before has a volume of such lavishness and magnitude been devoted to printed textiles. Covering the past two centuries, during which the Industrial Revolution drastically altered textile manufacture, Textile Designs presents a dazzling, comprehensive selection of the colourful patterned fabrics used for clothing and interior decoration. Here are the bright and hugely enjoyable materials of everyday life - the printed calicos and cottons, the flowered cretonnes and chintzes, the polka-dot silks and foulards. These are presented by pattern and motif, in contrast to the chronological displays in most books and museums. The dates and countries of origin are supplied wherever known. A rich and colourful resource in which glamour and usefulness are vividly combined, this visual encyclopaedia groups textiles by pattern under five headings: Floral, Geometric, Conversational, Ethnic, and Art Movements and Period Styles. Because of the world-wide interest in the subject, this international English-language edition includes translations of all the pattern names, as well as brief general introductions to the book in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese. Textile Designs will not only be indispensable to professionals in the fashion and decoration fields everywhere, but will also be an inspiration to designers in the graphic and visual arts, a reference book for quiltmakers and collectors, and a delight for lovers of the beautiful.
