Anyone liking pretty things will LOVE this book, full of colourful vintage fabrics used in a variety of different ways around the home and garden. Picked up at antique fairs, charity shops or plucked from family linen cupboards, these reams of prettiness can be used practically as gifts or just as pure ornament - draped over sofas and chairs, hung at windows, made up into cushions or bags, adding a vintage touch to your home. Whether you like floral chintzes, plain linens, intricate lace or 70s geometrics, the addition of these fabrics will add individuality to a home, stamping it with a personal touch gleaned from someone else's heirlooms. Lucinda Ganderton and Rose Hammick, accompanied by the fabulous photographs of Catherine Gratwicke, demonstrate the versatility these fabrics can offer. Simple projects are clearly explained and the photographs provide an endless source of inspiration. If you weren't overly interested in fabrics before, you will be by the time you've read this. - Lucy Watson
