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