Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Textiles Now celebrates international contemporary textile design, focusing on fabric and fiber designs from the past five years that have been created for use in decorative art, fashion, and interior design.

Lavishly illustrated with photographs showing the textiles and, where appropriate, their end use in context. Clear captions provide information on the contributing artists, their techniques and inspirations, enabling a deeper critical understanding and appreciation of the medium.

Organized into three sections embracing constructed textiles, dyed, painted and printed textiles, and stitched and mixed-media textiles, the images are arranged to make an impressive visual statement. The book includes over 400 images from around 100 textile and fiber artists ranging from new graduates to experienced practitioners, making an indispensable reference for anyone with a passion for textileswhether student, professional, or hobbyist. It will also appeal to those with an interest in color and pattern, including artists and graphic designers.
