From Library Journal
This exhaustive 1991 catalog of designs features 1,823 color illustrations. Patterns are divided into floral, geometric, conversational, and ethnic and by movements and period styles. A nice extra is a table of contents and a brief introduction presented in French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese in addition to English. As LJ's reviewer initially observed, "this book is a colorful confection, but it is also a thoughtful and informative analysis of the artistic choices that are subconscious interpretations of the moods, longings, and aspirations of humankind."
