This book reflects such richness and provides designers at all levels with inspiration for new and unexpected ways of using color and pattern in their own work. Over 20 textiles are explored in a series of photographs to reveal a wealth of motifs from fruit and flowers to birds and beasts, as well as abstract and geometric designs and, more unusually, the two combined to startling effect.

In addition, brief commentaries highlight the desing features and a technical glossary supports the main text so you cna rely on the book for eye-catching patterns as well as refer to it for specific information.
