    The Decorative Art of Textiles

    Caroline Lebeau
    Text by Patricia Corbett

    This is an exuberant and comprehensive tour of this most versatile design element its history, technology and lore lavishly illustrated with hundreds of imaginative ideas from the world's foremost contemporary designers and decorators. Incomparably rich in variety and detail, Fabrics will inspire, inform and simply fascinate anyone in love with the textile arts.

    Following an historical introduction that tells the story of fabrics from ancient Egypt through the Industrial Revolution to the present day, the authors take a detailed look at individual fabrics cotton, linen, silk and wool. Chapters on upholstery, bed hangings and drapery show how fabrics can be sewn, stuffed, contoured, hung, swagged and thrown into nearly every imaginable form. Even the use of trim passementerie is explored in a chapter of its own, with a wealth of fringe, tassels and tiebacks.

    Finally, some of the best international decorators are showcased in A Creative Album'. Also included are an invaluable glossary and a directory of sources.
