Overview

The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, is the world’s greatest museum of art and design, with a vast collection that been an unparalleled resource for designers for 150 years. This new series of pattern books presents the range of the V&A’s superb collections. Beautifully designed, accessible, and informative– perhaps a little quirky – they are a repository of ideas for designers of all kinds, but also a collection of desirable gift books. Included in each volume is a CD of all the images shown within--to be redrawn, reworked, or even licensed for further use.  The books are available individually or in a beautiful decorative slipcase.
 

Garden Florals brings together a wonderful range of botanical patterns from wallpaper, textiles, prints, and drawings. The short text is followed by 60 colorplates that feature gorgeous plant-form patterns dating from 1880 to 1910.
