----------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

----------hardcover, about 9.75 x 8.25 inches, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, a new copy, 160 pages, colour and some b&w photos and illustrations, ---"By the close of the 19th century a new kind of painting was sweeping through Europe. This work was bolder, displaying a greater breadth of handling and pictorial freedom. Matisse, Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gaugin were producing abstracted forms through the use of arbitrary colour, decorative elements of line and composition and a refusal to submit their compositions to the realities of nature. How did this movement arrive in Canada and what happened to it once it did? Through a highly enjoyable mix of historical documentation, critical reviews and personal correspondence, Murray tracks the tumultuous emergence of this "New Art" , the Canadian artists who championed it and the critics who fought it at every turn. John Lyman, David Milne, Lawren Harris, Tom Thomson and Emily Carr leapt at the chance to escape outworn convention but the art they produced was slightly out-of-place in the evolution of world Post-Impressionism. Theirs was an interpretation marked by lyrical intensity and by an attachment to Canada's savage physical environment. Through a potent and unique combination of foreign influence and local naturalism, they invented not only a new art form but a vision of Canada that remains with us today. With 19 artists' biographies, personal correspondence from John Lyman, Emily Carr and Anne Savage, an extensive bibliography and 40 colour plates"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
