|Soft Surfaces: Visual Research for Artists, Architects, and Designers
By Judy A. Juracek
1,200 high-quality color images of textiles, in print and on a CD-ROM with printable TIFF files.
The photographs give views of antique, traditional, contemporary, and innovative textiles, and their applications, such as window treatments, wall coverings, upholstery, awnings, and carpets. Captions give information about the fabrics construction and history with a separate listing of suppliers.
Images are coded and cross-referenced in the index and on the CD-ROM, making the book a compact picture file for architects, designers, illustrators, and graphic artists. With an illustrated glossary, resource sections, and interviews with professionals in the textile industry, this is also a great book for students.
