New Pattern Books from the V&A

I really need to stop reading those Amazon UK emails with the heading 'Recommended for You'..... The latest collection of V&A Pattern books are due for release in April 2012, and I am looking forward to receiving these always excellent pattern reference books in my mailbox.

Sanderson by Mary Schoeser showcases the vibrant wallpapers and fabrics produced during the 1950's through to the 1970's by the highly regarded British manufacturer.

 Heal's by Mary Schoeser showcases the wide range of contemporary fabrics offered by this retail institution around the mid-twentieth century.

Liberty & Co by Anna Buruma charts the development of the legendary company through their innovative textile designs.

Modern British Designers by Samantha Erin Safer traces the past 50 years of innovation and creative genius in British design. Designers featured include Zandra Rhodes, Terence Conran and Shirley Craven.
