Additional Information

The first book to examine pattern as an essential part of twentieth-century design history is now available in paperback. Organized by decade, 20th-Century Pattern Design details the technical innovations that affected the development of modern textiles and wallpapers. Vibrant patterns bold, colorful, muted, delicate, intricate, splashy, spare, figurative, abstract, dizzying, calming abound in this comprehensive reference. Featuring stunning color plates and lively text, this book takes readers on a tour of twentieth-century patterns from around the world. Focusing on surface patterns in the home, author Lesley Jackson draws frequent parallels to the worlds of fashion, packaging, and graphics and explores the relationship between painting and pattern design. 20th-Century Pattern Design is an invaluable resource for modern design enthusiasts and historians, collectors, and interior and graphic designers.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This is a good resource for patterns and inspiration. This book has a much better edited selection of patterns and textiles than other books in the same categories.
This is a great book to read and a delight to pore over the designs - to see them in context with the times and in historical chronology as the styles morph with the world around them.
It is a kind of encyclopedia about patterns, no explanation about how they were made, processes, artistic analysis... some history about authors but nothing else.
