"Lucid exposition of the artistic and industrial background of the movement ... its excellent plates ... convey the richness and subtlety of color so characteristic of Arts and Crafts movement textiles." Journal of the William Morris Society
This is a comprehensive survey of textiles in the English Arts and Crafts style. For twenty-five years after the first Arts and Crafts Exhibition in 1888, they were shown throughout Europe and the United States, influencing designers and attracting a large public, and were sold by the most fashionable shops. The refined creations of Arthur Silver (including Liberty's celebrated Peacock Feather), the distinctive designs of C. F A. Voysey, the floral patterns of Lindsay Butterfield and George Haite - all are a source of delight and aesthetic inspiration.
Linda Parry examines the whole range of Arts and Crafts textiles - printed and woven fabrics, tapestries and carpets, embroideries and lace - and provides invaluable information on designers, manufacturers and shops. Also included are rare photographs of some of the designers and of original interiors, where the fabrics appear in use.
