London's Victoria and Albert Museum houses a remarkable collection of fabrics manufactured in Britain and around the world, and this handsome boxed set from the V&A contains four small monographs focusing on particular types of textiles. Each volume is a laminated hardbound book with a ribbon marker, full-page color plates of more than 70 swatches, and includes a CD-ROM with digital scans of each fabric in 300-dpi JPEG files. Walter Crane looks at the works of a key designer of the aesthetic movement, incorporating swans, bulrushes, and fairy tales into his diverse patterns. Chinese Textiles highlights the motifs of luxurious courtly robes, floral silks intended for the export market, and even the tongue-in-cheek patterns of Vivienne Tam. Pop Patterns showcases Andy Warhol's influence on commercial design in the 1970s, when soup cans, lipsticks, and even men's haircuts graced fabrics and wallpapers. Spitalfields Silks surveys the delightful floral silks and the quirky, strikingly modern designs produced in 18th-century London.
