    ‘Intelligent and beautiful ... an important book, the first to demonstrate the variety and impact of Wiener Werkstätte printed textiles’ – RSA Journal ‘Permanently changes our understanding of fine and fashionable textiles in one of the most productive periods in the history of design’ – Crafts ‘Like emptying a trunk of the most colourful and exciting fabrics onto the floor: an Aladdin’s Cave … the design is intelligent and varied … an informative visual feast’ – The Times Educational Supplement For designers, decorators or anyone simply in search of visual inspiration, this book is a goldmine and a fitting tribute to a period of astonishing creativity. A wealth of reproductions, many in colour, are supplemented by an exhaustive catalogue and artist biographies, as well as contemporary photographs of the textiles’ uses in fashion and interior decoration. The textile patterns and prints of the Wiener Werkstätte were among the most popular and successful designs of the early twentieth century, reflecting both the tastes of Viennese high society and the general trend towards artistic abstraction. Textiles of the Wiener Werkstätte 1910–32 presents selections from the original gouache drawings, pattern books and about 20,000 samples now in the collection of the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna – a truly remarkable archive of most of the over 1,800 recorded fabric designs. These range from the early naturalistic motifs of Art Nouveau to the later geometric designs associated with Art Deco. Angela Völker’s text gives accounts of a range of topics, including the designs by Koloman Moser and Josef Hoffmann for Backhausen and Söhne before the foundation of the textile department in about 1910, methods of production, sales policy, customers and end use. Angela Völker has been head of the department of textiles in the Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst, Vienna, for nearly thirty years. Her previous publications include works on other aspects of the museum’s collections, particularly those concerned with the fashion department of the Wiener Werkstätte.
