Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016


Still on the Borderline

At long last, The Calico Museum of Textiles' revamped site is live, complete with online ordering. The previously posted, fantastical border print with striped turtles, patterned fish and flowers is one of many designs available as a notecard.

Also offered in the publications section: a reprint of G. P. Baker's 1921 edition, Calico Painting and Printing in the East Indies in the XVII AND XVIII Centuries.

[Screengrab of Emily Blunt in The Adjustment Bureau. Set decoration by Susan Bode-Tyson, production design Kevin Thompson.]

The museum looks incredible! So much inspiration in one place. Have you ordered anything from them yet? The bank transfer thing looks a little scary.

Hi Lori -- the museum is incredible, but no I haven't attempted an international order yet. Will post info if I learn more.
