V&A Pattern: Indian Florals
The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, is the world’s greatest museum of art and design, with a vast collection that been an unparalleled resource for designers for 150 years.
This new series of pattern books presents the range of the V&A’s superb collections. Beautifully designed, accessible, and informative, these little books are a repository of ideas and inspiration for designers of all kinds. Included in each volume is a CD of all the images shown within--to be redrawn, reworked, or even licensed for further use. The books are available individually or in a beautiful decorative slipcase.
INDIAN FLORALS Luscious patterns derived from plants and flowers have been used in India for centuries. Lotus flowers and floral meanders are seen in third-century Buddhist sites, and were given an additional dimension by European prints and books that made their way to the sub-continent in the early seventeenth century
