Description

This book narrates the evolution of textile pattern through the history of manmade design. It studies the decorative art of pattern across a range of cultural aesthetics embracing Egyptian, Greek and Roman motifs, Asian and Middle Eastern as well as Western designs from medieval times up to the present. The chapters are thematic and include geometric, floral, natural forms, and abstract patterns. Each subject is broken down into chronology and region to explore the contrasts and repetition within each thematic chapter. All in all, this is an excellent pocket guide to the subject of textile patterns.
