Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Take one measure of design theory, add a cup of printing techniques, and fold in a tablespoon of ancient symbology. Add a dash of historical context, and mix well into a huge bowl of over 1800 gorgeous fabric designs. The ingredients make a luscious dessert known as Textile De signs . Meller, the owner of the fabrics depicted here, has interpreted her dessert in five different ways according to motif: floral, geometric, conversational, ethnic, and art movements and period styles. To please the most discriminating palate, she used only the best ingredients (some rarities dating to the 18th century) from her design library and design loft. The 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. Highly recommended for design or decorative arts collections.-- Sherry Porter, Texas Coll. of Osteopathic Medicine, Fort Worth
