Description

This is a comprehensive survey, published by Thames and Hudson, of English textiles from the era when Britain led the design world. 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 Haité – all are a source of delight and aesthetic inspiration.
