Following the success of the previous titles in the V&A Pattern series, four new books reveal more of the V&A’s spectacular and extensive pattern collections. Chinese Textiles moves through the centuries highlighting the motifs of luxurious courtly robes, floral silks intended for the export market, and even the tongue-in-cheek patterns of Vivienne Tam. Spitalfields Silks displays delightful floral designs alongside quirky, strikingly modern silks, all produced in 18th-century London. Pop Patterns showcases Andy Warhol’s influence on commercial design in the 1970s, when soup cans, lipsticks, and even men’s haircuts graced dress fabrics and wallpapers. Walter Crane looks at the works of a key designer of the Aesthetic movement, incorporating swans, bulrushes, fairy tales, and more into his diverse patterns.
