Item description for Textile Designs: Two Hundred Years of European and American Patterns Organized by Motif, Style, Color, Layout, and Period by Susan Meller & Joost Elffers...

Never before have printed textiles been celebrated in a book of this magnitude. Now in paperback, Textile Designs is the indispensable sourcebook for the colorful patterned materials that have been used in fashion and interiors for the past 200 years. Organized not chronologically or geographically but by motif -- Floral, Geometric, Conversational, Ethnic, and Art Movements and Period Styles -- this bible of textile design presents a stunning cross-section of the materials of everyday life: printed calicos and cottons, flowered cretonnes and chintzes, polka-dot silks and foulards. With its informative text and pattern names provided not only in English but also in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese, this is a must-have for everyone interested in color and pattern.

Excellent Reference Book  Apr 17, 2008
A must for any textile designer.

This beautiful book is divided into textile themes and offers an amazing range of style, colour and subject.
A great source of inspiration for any surface designer or illustrator.
 
Great resource  Mar 15, 2008
This is a great book to have as a go-to book for anything in the textile design catagory; shapes, colors, period pieces, etc. My only disappointment was each reproduction of designs are somewhat small. None the less, there is a LOT to be found in this.
 
essential resource  Jan 31, 2008
This book is an essential resource for anyone wanting to reproduce historical clothing - use it to train your perception, use it as a dictionary of style names, use it as a quick, well organized reference. I love it and make my studio help and design interns study it.
