THE exhaustion of a further edition of Pattern Design and the steady demand for the work are an indication of its continuing practical value as a textbook, but it seemed advisable that it should be thoroughly revised and brought up to date and it was decided to entrust the work to Mr Amor Fenn, who, as a personal friend of Lewis F. Day, was conversant with his work and in sympathy with his aims and methods. Consequently, the book forthe first time since its appearance has received a thorough overhaul the order of the chapters has been rearranged, and that on Borders a subject Mr Fenn has made particularly his own has been transformed and re-illustrated. A number of illustrations have been redrawn or replaced, and others added, including two coloured plates, while the Editor has contributed a chapter summarising the course of the design of pattern during the past eighty years down to the present day, illustrated by the representative work of well-known English and Continental designers. It is the hope and desire of every one connected with the book that it may maintain its position as a standard work, and continue or enhance its usefulness to students and others connected with design and pattern, the importance of which in everyday life is being increasingly realised. It is with deep grief and regret that we have to record that Mr Amor Fenn was suddenly taken from us while this book was passing through the press, and consequently did not survive to see the finished result of his work.

PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION. A MAN has a right, I suppose, to pull down the building he once put up, and to raise another in its place...
