So Happy Together
Pairing old with contemporary, geometric with botanical, the mix of the day sets Carolina Irving's Andaluz in Viola against late-18th-century Northern Indian designs seen in Rosemary Crill's book from the V A Pattern series: Indian Florals.
Another scholar, The Design Library's founder Susan Meller, has a new book due out toward the end of November. In the next few weeks, I'll explore Silk and Cotton: Textiles from the Central Asia that Was. But in case you don't know, Meller's own site offers sneak peeks inside all of her books, archive images available to license, notecards and an online bazaar with antique and vintage fabrics.
