V&A Pattern: The Fifties: (Hardcover with CD) by Sue Prichard

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, these little books are a repository of ideas and inspiration for designers of all kinds. 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.

The Fifties
The Fifties produced some of the most inventive and innovative twentieth-century pattern designs as the emerging trend for abstraction in the fine arts--as exemplified by Miró, Calder, and Klee, for instance--acted as a stimulus for many European and American designers.
