200 Years of Patterns for Printed Fabrics Arranged by Motif, Colour, Period and Design
Author: Susan Meller
Publisher: Bilimsel Eserler
Never before has a volume of such lavishness and magnitude been devoted to printed textiles. Covering the past two centuries, during which the Industrial Revolution drastically altered textile manufacture, Textile Designs presents a dazzling, comprehensive selection of the colourful patterned fabrics used for clothing and interior decoration. Here are the bright and hugely enjoyable materials of everyday life - the printed calicos and cottons, the flowered cretonnes and chintzes, the polka-dot silks and foulards. These are presented by pattern and motif, in contrast to the chronological displays in most books and museums. The dates and countries of origin are supplied wherever known. A rich and colourful resource in which glamour and usefulness are vividly combined, this visual encyclopaedia groups textiles by pattern under five headings: Floral, Geometric, Conversational, Ethnic, and Art Movements and Period Styles. Because of the world-wide interest in the subject, this international English-language edition includes translations of all the pattern names, as well as brief general introductions to the book in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese. Textile Designs will not only be indispensable to professionals in the fashion and decoration fields everywhere, but will also be an inspiration to designers in the graphic and visual arts, a reference book for quiltmakers and collectors, and a delight for lovers of the beautiful.
This superb, comprehensive sourcebook features over 500 splendid motifs adapted from elegant brocades. It includes colorful block prints and woven designs inspired by nature — trees, leaves, flowers, buds, animals and birds.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh's (Scottish, 1868-1928) textile designs are not widely known—unlike his architecture, furniture, and watercolors. Fortunately, many of his original drawings for textile designs, made between 1915 and 1923, have survived and are presented in this book, an expanded and revised edition of Mackintosh: Textile Designs (John Murray, 1982). Roger Billcliffe is a noted expert on Scottish art and on Mackintosh in particular. His previous books include Mackintosh Watercolours (Taplinger, 1978); Charles Rennie Mackintosh: The Complete Furniture, Furniture Drawings and Interior Designs (Taplinger, 1979), and Mackintosh Furniture (1984).
This volume in the International Design Library Series presents the joyous designs incorporated into the pa ndau or flower cloth textiles of the Hmong (pronounced 'Mung') people who are indigenous to Vietnam, Burma, Laos and Thailand, and recent immigrants to the United States and other countries. The pa ndau is a complex form of textile art, utilizing applique, reverse applique, cross-stitching and embroidery. The designs stitched into the fabric are equally complex, displaying traditional activities, folklore and religious beliefs. Among the larger pa ndau are 'story-cloths, ' which tell ancient myths and recent events. Examples of these, too, are rendered magnificently, along with their captions in English.
