Liberty British Colour Pattern
This lavishly illustrated book from the London design institution Liberty promises ‘a voyage of discovery through the archives and memorabilia of the last great emporium for innovative British design’.
Drawing from the past 135 years of the iconic store’s extensive archives, this publication presents previously unseen photographs of a remarkable range of Liberty products and prints. A valuable resource publication for all lovers of pattern and vintage textiles, the boxed book also has a wonderfully playful feel to it due to the inclusion of built in envelopes. These contain postcards and pamphlets of advertising campaigns from days gone by and sketched designs for collaborative textiles by Grayson Perry.
Liberty British Colour Pattern is published by Goodman Books, £35.
