Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From western-based motifs with covered wagons to freeform abstract markings inspired by Pollack and de Kooning, this neat collection of 1950s patterns captures the major trends from the heyday of postwar design. Featuring all the print gurus of the time, including Lucienne Day, Robert Stewart, and Maija Isola of Marimekko, Vintage Pattern: 1950s gives full expression to the creativity of the age. With hundreds of prints, plus exclusive illustrations and original artwork, this is the essential sourcebook for designers and students and an engaging tribute to a key era in fashion.
