Newton, curator of the Victoria and Albert Museum's Department of Prints, Drawings, and Paintings, has assembled a collection of designs from the museum that show the breadth of Victorian design, from the Gothic and Rococo revivals to the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements. These designs comprise watercolors showing interiors, sketches for furniture and architectural detail, and patterns used for textiles and wallpaper, some with the finished object itself. Since many of these works have never been published before, this book provides a unique view of the design history of Victorian England that will be useful for design schools and professional collections.
