V&A Pattern: Slipcased Set #1 (Hardcovers with CDs)

The first in an ongoing series produced by The Victoria and Albert Museum, London. This new series of pattern books are beautifully designed and full of inspiration for designers. (Included is a CD of all the images that can be reworked, or licensed for further use.) The first four books in this new series include William Morris wallpapers, Indian florals, 1950s textiles, and digital pioneers – an interesting start to what promises to be an exciting collection.

Reprodepot Pattern Book: Flora: 225 Vintage-Inspired Textile Designs and Folk: 225 Vintage-Inspired Textile Designs

Reprodepot – the much loved online store for hard to find vintage and designer fabrics, has produced a book and cd of vintage-inspired textile patterns ready to print and use in creative projects. (Images are licensed for personal use only. There is a small provision for individual craftspeople to make limited edition handmade items for resale using the patterns.)
