Soft Surfaces: Visual Research for Artists, Architects, and Designers
Shows how hundreds of varieties of fabric look up close and in interior and exterior applications. Juracek (scenic artist in film, television, theater, and opera) presents about 1,200 color photographs that group fabric by structure, surface, treatment, style, and application. They include window treatments, upholstery, awnings, tents, and floor coverings, and show specific materials ready to be used in design presentations, as backgrounds, or for general visual information. Interviews with outstanding design professionals describe how they use textiles in their work. Also contains a glossary of technical terms and a list of sources. The accompanying CD-ROM includes screen resolution TIF files for all images in the book. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
