More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This exhaustive 1991 catalog of designs features 1,823 color illustrations. Patterns are divided into floral, geometric, conversational, and ethnic and by movements and period styles. A nice extra is a table of contents and a brief introduction presented in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese in addition to English. As LJ's reviewer initially observed, "this book is a colorful confection, but it is also a thoughtful and informative analysis of the artistic choices that are subconscious interpretations of the moods, longings, and aspirations of humankind." On top of that, this paper reprint is $30 cheaper than the original! (LJ 11/15/91) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Simply AMAZING

    I work with fabrics on a daily basis and got this book to help me figure out their ages... I got that and MUCH more. Every page is a burst of color, patterns, design... it's a fabric-lovers dream. And it's inspirational for ANYONE interested in textile design. I LOVE IT!
