Here’s the skinny on stripes: a zigzag tour of the form through seventy years of fabric design. Nearly 600 pictures of historic fabric swatches from all over the world provide a virtual treasure chest of design ideas, from the prim floral fashions of the 1940s to the outrageous color combinations and painterly couture fabrics released by the top design houses in Paris during the 1960s. Brilliant photographs provide a visual survey of stripes’ many forms, from woven-in to imitation weaves, from wavy lines to prim and proper pin stripes. This is the largest full-color photographic album of textile stripes ever produced, and an invaluable reference guide for artists of every medium.
