From the Publisher: From FabriCAD July/August 2000:
"The Design Library has released the latest in their series of design CD's created from the indispensible book TEXTILE DESIGNS: Two Hundred Years of European and American Patterns by Susan Meller and Joost Elffers.
The (geometric) digital collection contains 690 images in 87 categories...The easy-to-use browser gives you the option to search by category or flip through the sections seeking inspiration.
Selected images can be downloaded to your design program in either high (300dpi) or low resolution (72dpi).
In many cases, the images on the CD are in full repeat whereas in the book they are not.
While it's possible to use the designs "as is", the more common scenario is to use them as starting points for further design development.
The CD works for Macintosh, Windows, UNIX and Linux operating systems. Technical info can be found by contacting the Design Library at info@design-library.

Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine (see description). Photo Cover (illustrator). First Edition. ----------hardcover, about 9.25 x 12 inches, a Near Fine copy in a lightly rubbed Near Fine dustjacket , 464 pages, colour images and photos throughout, a lovely book that looks new, --- Never before have printed textiles been celebrated in a book of this magnitude. Now in paperback, Textile Designs is the indispensable sourcebook for the colorful patterned materials that have been used in fashion and interiors for the past 200 years. Organized not chronologically or geographically but by motif—Floral, Geometric, Conversational, Ethnic, and Art Movements and Period Styles—this bible of textile design presents a stunning cross-section of the materials of everyday life: printed calicos and cottons, flowered cretonnes and chintzes, polka-dot silks and foulards. With its informative text and pattern names provided not only in English but also in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese, this is a must-have for everyone interested in color and pattern -----this volume remains unsurpassed as the biggest and most lavish survey of printed textiles ever published. Textile Designs presents a comprehensive selection of the colourful patterned fabrics used for clothing and interior decoration over the last 200 years. Here are the bright and hugely enjoyable materials of everyday life - the printed calicos and cottons, the flowered cretonnes and chintzes, the polka-dot silks and foulards. These are presented by motif and pattern under separate headings: Floral, Geometric, Conversational, Ethnic, and Art Movements and Period Styles, and illustrated in nearly 2,000 colour reproductions. Textile Designs is not only indispensable to professionals in the fashion and decoration fields everywhere, but will also be an inspiration to designers in the graphic and visual arts, a reference book for collectors and a delight for aesthetes everywhere.-----In Western fabric design, the parts of speech can be divided into Florals, Geometrics, Conversationals, Ethnics, and Art Movements and Period Styles – the subjects of the five chapters of this book. And each of these broad categories, or families, have been divided into many subcategories, such as Roses and Sprigs among the Florals; Chevrons and Herringbones among the Geometrics; Bubbles and Butterflies among the Conversationals; Americana and Chinoiserie among the Ethnics; Art Nouveau and Empire among the Art Movements and Period Styles. The successful textile designer seeks not to devise something never before imagined, but to create a variation on one of these preexisting themes (Or perhaps not even to do that - a quantity of any season’s prints are frank borrowings from earlier designs.) It is the tool of the trade, the language that makes textile speech possible, overseas shipping (outside of Canada and the USA ) will require additional postage, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
