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.
