An Industrious Art: Innovation in Pattern and Print at The Fabric Workshop
Edited by Marion Boulton Stroud
Well you may as well throw out every other book you own about textiles because this is the only one you’ll need from here on out. Established in 1977 by Marion Boulton Stroud, The Fabric Workshop is a non-profit organization devoted to experimental fabric design and printing by emerging and internationally recognized artist. Louise Bourgeois, Howard Finster, Anish Kapoor, Mike Kelley, Robert Venturi, Betty Woodman and Roy Lichtenstein are just a few of the big names whose work remains in the Workshop’s permanent collection. But name-dropping aside, the textile works reproduced in this book are seriously INSANE. For lovers of the decorative arts, interior design, textiles and fabric art – this book is TO DIE FOR.
