A new series celebrating the V and A's unique collection of patterns and designs from William Morris wallpapers to 1950s textiles.
This series celebrates the V and A's status as a source of inspiration for designers, reflecting the unique breadth and depth of a collection that represents over 3000 years of objects from all over the world. The pocket sized books make attractive and collectable gifts but are also a valuable source of ideas for designers of all kinds. The first four titles feature some of the museum's most popular patterns, from sumptuous William Morris wallpapers and Indian florals to the fresh modernity of 1950s textiles and the digital pioneers. A short introduction to each book puts the patterns in context.
Each book comes with a free CD of the images inside, which can be redrawn or reworked. Commercial designers looking to license patterns and individual motifs from the collection can use the books as a starting point for research.
The books are available individually or as a stylish boxed set (9781851775903).
